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. For the exception of “Make Them Dinner At Our Shoes” which is from 2009. – Tim Presley
Another killer recording from White Fence , now through John Dwyer´s Castle Face label., which are proving to be unstoppable in 2013 , what with the great Warm Soda album , a new Oh Sees record and now this record is a huge addition to their catalog,like are most of Tim Presley´s works.
This dude is awesome. The new work from this maniacal genius under the White Fence moniker , rocks just a bit more than the previous stuff. indeed, and sure to stick in your head for days. Near-perfect psych-pop-rock.
If you aren’t familiar with his work, check out his stuff for sure. Each record had their own world, and sound totally different. This guy is full of ideas, and hopefully he won’t be running out of them in this lifetime.
