Stream White Fence For The Recently Found Innocent

Over the last few years, White Fence (aka Tim Presley) has released some great music, including Cyclops Reap and the collaboration with Ty Segall, Hair; now he’s back with For The Recently Found Innocent, a record that finds him channeling ’60s psychedelia more than ever before.

Jack Name – “Pure Terror”

Jack Name is John Webster John, touring guitarist for White Fence. And though this is a new moniker, John has been dishing out excellent psych-pop for quite a while now. “Pure Terror” is the first single off his upcoming debut album under the moniker and is an appropriately heady torch song. Listen and download it… More »

White Fence – “Today’s Lesson” (Filth Cover)

This past winter, Ghoulie, a dachshund belonging to poster artist William Keihn, broke his back, and the surgery he needed set Keihn back a whole bunch of money. So Burger Records has released the cassette benefit compilation The Wiener Dog Comp II: The Ghoulie Tape, and proceeds are going to help pay down Keihn’s debut. More »

White Fence – “To The Boy” (Stereogum Premiere)

White Fence is gearing up to release his album Cyclops Reap, from which we’ve already heard “Pink Gorilla” and “Fragility.” Its third sampling is “To The Boy,” a psych rock slow jam that really makes you understand why at some point, “groovy” was the adulatory phrase of choice when crunchy, blissed out riffs were o… More »

White Fence – “Fragility”

A little while ago, we posted “Pink Gorilla,” the new single from Bay Area psych rocker White Fence, who last year released Hair, the great collaborative album with Ty Segall. “Pink Gorilla” is out now, and now we’ve got a stream of “Fragility,” its B-side.

White Fence – “Green Balloon”

White Fence’s Tim Presley has a lot in the hopper right now, what with the Ty Segall-aided collaborative album Hair out on 4/24 and his own double LP as White Fence out a couple weeks later (5/15 on Woodsist). But, apparently, he’s got time to crank out some non-album singles, too. Hear the psych-y jam… More »

Ty Segall & White Fence – “I Am Not A Game”

Last year, the San Francisco fuzz-punk Ty Segall scored big by turning (relatively) introspective on Goodbye Bread. For his follow-up, though, Segall seems to be turning back to his roots. He’s teamed up with fellow Bay Area lo-fi brat White Fence to record the collaborative album Hair. And the first track we’ve heard, “I Am… More »
