Last year, Tim Presley of White Fence joined psychedelic forces with Ty Segall for collaborative LP Hair on Drag City. Now White Fence returns with another album, Cyclops Reap, due out April 9 via Castle Face, the label run by John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees. Below, stream a high-energy cut from the album, “Pink Gorilla,” marked by Presley’s floating vox and plenty of intricate, distorted guitar work.
In a press release, Presley said this about the forthcoming album:
In the span of 4 1/2 years. I’ve lived in two different apartments and have used three different rooms during this time. All in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA, only a couple miles from one another. After the death of my father in 2008 I started writing and recording non-stop in these rooms. I can’t say it was directly because of that trauma, but I think deep down it might have much to do about it. This record was initially going to be a collection of the many songs trapped between the 4 White Fence LP’s. As i was putting that together, there were more coming. a better crop. i couldn’t stop. So, instead of a retrospective i said ’Fuck It’. might as well use the most current songs of the bunch.
Cyclops Reap is our 4/9 via Castle Face.
