With two full weekends of ACL Fest looming in the not-too-distant-hopefully-cooler future, it’s time to start digging into the lineup, so once again we start our daily band briefs.

From: Austin

ACL set: 5 p.m. Sun, Austin Ventures

In 50 words or fewer: Austin-based White Denim, once a trio, now a four-piece, are set to release a new album, “Corsicana Lemonade,” on Oct. 29. The follow-up to 2011’s “D,” the album includes production work from Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, who recently invited the band to perform at his Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts.

Could share a bill with: Yeasayer, Wilco

Steady connection: White Denim drummer Josh Block appears on Hold Steady front man Craig Finn’s solo album, “Clear Heart Full Eyes,” which was produced by Mike McCarthy.
