WHITE FENCE

 
 

'For the Recently Found Innocent' (2014 Drag City) is many things — the fifth White Fence album, the first White Fence album to be recorded outside the bedroom fence (with live drumming!), the first White Fence record to be produced for Drag City Records. Plus also, a sophomore pump: the second time that Tim Presley and Ty Segall (also Domino Publishing) have met to record music (does anyone remember Hair?), this time pure and simply committed in the name of White Fence. Inevitably, the collision at the intersection of all these winding roads is a beautiful pileup of deep impacts, graceful lines and open space embodied in sound, White on White, compacted for your eyes and ears to believe. White Fence’s previous release, 'Cyclops Reap' (Castle Face 2013) demonstrated a process being executed at the top of its game (which, we know, is NOT a game). 'For the Recently Found Innocent' surges forth with fresh set of elaborately crafted songs, harmony vocalizations and trippin’ guitar tones that strike the face and viscera with an equal (easy) blow. White Fence conjure a fantasy about reality, of the world as it is and should always be; their songs are alterna-hits played out in green sun, in blue air, on repeat, relentless, RIGHTEOUS in the privacy of front-parlor and yes, bedroom — White Fence, full-circle, from the cradle to the grave!
