-valis Pick of the Week

Hail Voyagers! New week, and with it a new Pick: White Fence! Now five albums into this project, Tim Presley, (Darker My Love,)makes a brilliant follow-up to Cyclops Reap!Titled For The Recently Found Innocent, it came out yesterday via Drag City.

Perhaps as a result of getting himself into a studio, rather than past recording efforts in more humble sonic spaces, Presley -and producer Ty Segall, have found that sweet spot for Presley's tunes to fully bloom into the magical creations they were meant to be. Mind, there's still lots of the lo-fi shambling and ramble but it's appreciated more at this dosage. Emotion-filled and full of the fire of the bands inspiring him to create music, this one has the Kinksian and Who-like all sewed up. Power surges. We reap the benefit. Recommended. Highly.
