White Fence - 'For The Recently Found Innocent'

Tim Presley and Ty Segall reunite on fifth album of acidic garage and booze funk

White Fence - 'For The Recently Found Innocent'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 21, 2014
  • Label: Drag City
7 / 10 Tim Presley is a brave man. As guitarist in LA psych rockers Darker My Love, he’s stripped naked in NME and played in Britain’s most volatile group, The Fall. His fifth album as White Fence finds him on safer territory, renewing his collaboration with Ty Segall. Soaked in the pair’s love of acidic garage, they dally with ‘White Album’-era Beatles riffs (‘Wolf Gets Red Faced’), flower-power harmonies (‘Actor’) and boozy piano funk (‘Raven On White Cadillac’). Most of the scattershot pastiches hit their targets, and we can only salute Presley’s variable attempts at an English accent on ‘Arrow Man’ – or, as he pronounces it, “//Errow man//” – the scamp.
