White Fence
White Fence
White Fence is one man, Tim Presley, singer in garage-soul band Darker My Love, player on The Fall album Reformation Post TLC and now full-time member of The Strange Boys.
It’s the 21st century man —we’re way past the feudal phase! Yet, somehow, some people still radiate their noble bearing, no matter where they are — just as certain songs are clearly meant to sing from the turrets still. In this fashion, and with high-collared coat turned up against the cruel wind, White Fence emerge from their high aerie to display a shining array of royal jewels each time they unveil a new pop album to the world. The gliss and glitter that sounds forth from For the Recently Found Innocent has a shine all its own, and for Reasons too.

For the Recently Found Innocent is many things — the fifth White Fence album, the first White Fence album to be recorded outside the bedroom fence (with live drumming!), the first White Fence record to be produced for Drag City. Plus also, a sophomore pump: the second time that Tim Presley and Ty Segall have met to record music (does anyone remember Hair?), this time pure and simply committed in the name of White Fence. Inevitably, the collision at the intersection of all these winding roads is a beautiful pileup of deep impacts, graceful lines and open space embodied in sound, White on White, compacted for your eyes and ears to believe.

In the tale of For the Recently Found Innocent, Tim Presley has succeeded in bringing his signature role, that of the hissing reptilian wraith, to the magnesium screen. Moving with the sidewalks in the first rippling of the light, our gimlet-eyed hero is steeped in the time-honored practice of hand-eye coordination known as ‘rhythmatism’; master of verbal acrobatics (always sticking the landing) and palm-reading melodies, where he proves uncannily prescient in tracing where the lifeline goes as moves it through the path of verse-chorus-bridge-et al.

White Fence’s previous release, Cyclops Reap, demonstrated a process being executed at the top of its game (which, we know, is NOT a game). For the Recently Found Innocent surges forth with fresh set of elaborately crafted songs, harmony vocalizations and trippin’ guitar tones that strike the face and viscera with an equal (easy) blow. White Fence conjure a fantasy about reality, of the world as it is and should always be; their songs are alterna-hits played out in green sun, in blue air, on repeat, relentless, RIGHTEOUS in the privacy of front-parlor and yes, bedroom — White Fence, full-circle, from the cradle to the grave!

One listen to For the Recently Found Innocent and (y)our faith is still growing.
Once and Future Band
Once and Future Band
Announcing CF-083 Once and Future Band

In the vapor trail of “How Does It Make You Feel” you can smell the burnt ozone of a seventies-full-orchestra-nebula-pop-odyssey, the flakes floating down and landing on you like snow and giving you the grave-chills…the ash of a masterpiece pop song. Once and Future Band: this incredibly accomplished cabal of total prog wizards has circled the earth, but then, these are the accomplished gentlemen of many former pursuits (the formidable Drunk Horse among them) and all of them comets themselves. The very mid 70s vibe at work here surpasses pastiche, and crests that lovely anachronistic conceptual peak: a fully realized and meticulously arranged psych record, meant to be listened to from top to bottom, with the lights down low and in a comfy chair perhaps, or while gazing out the window of your life pod. A Dark Side of the Moon feel, with shades of early Yes’s technicality, a dash of Steely Dan’s vocal prowess and effortless sheen, and some seriously outsized hooks that call to mind the mighty ELO, Le Orme and yes, even the unsinkable Queen powered on Brian May’s tape echo jet fuel and sequined power cells…this is a head record in the classic sense but we swear to The Dark One that you will be trapped and infected by the pop-parasite. That it is largely self-produced (with tracking/engineering on three of the songs by Phil Manley at El Studio) makes it all the more jaw dropping. We didn’t realize how much we needed Once and Future Band in our life, but now that they’re here we can’t get them out of our brains or off of our stereo. Making prog cool again, again, and then slightly more complicatedly, again.
Peacers
Peacers
The Peacers are the SF group consisting of Shayde Sartin (Fresh & Only's), Mike Donovan (Sic Alps), Mike Shoun (Thee Oh Sees) and Bo Moore (Bozmo). The rock quartet will release the LP "Introducing the Crimsmen" JUNE 16 on the Drag City label.
The Pesos
The Pesos
The Pesos started out in the sunshine of Southern California in the balmy summer of 2013. After an inspirational jaunt to the hilly country of Austin, Texas, they returned to the west coast emboldened with a southern twang that enhanced the surf vibes they had been playing up and down the California coast. Accompanying the likes of the Growlers, Allah-las, and the legendary Ronnie Spector, the Pesos endeavor to embody the spirits of their influences – that of Maurice Deebank, San Onofre and the Velvet Underground. The Pesos are Yaan Pessino, Joey Bonano, Brendan Sepe, Devon Rogers, Avery Chandler.
The Range of Light Wilderness
The Range of Light Wilderness
The band is a three piece centered on songwriter Tommy Frank MacDonald. The sound is hushed and catchy, melodically magical, beachy pop. Songs are born from long days in Big Sur, where Tommy dwells on high ridge top, in the center of a sunset.
Mammatus
Mammatus
Mammatus is a band from the outer reaches of Santa Cruz County, California. Taking our name from the heaviest cloud found on our home planet, Mammatus harness instruments and amplifiers with the brave intent of transforming the natural beauty and massive fury that lies in the earth into acoustic energy. The sound that results from these explorations is an aural adventure, a sonic quest through the outer reaches of the natural and spiritual worlds. Mammatus use ROCK music in an effort to communicate with our fellow humans, because it the most overwhelmingly exciting and powerful sound we have discovered so far. We ROCK because we must! There is no medium more mind melting, more body banging, more…AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRHHHHHH!!!! than pure, LOUD, HEAVY, INSANE ROCK AND ROLL! That is why we must use every resource available; push our minds and bodies to the outer limits, so that we can make sure we are exciting ourselves and others with new, creative, pure, adventurous ROCK music. We play it how we like it, really really loud, lots of ridiculous guitar leads, thick heavy headbangin' riffs, proggy groovin', and plenty of weird stuff. We're doing the best we can, honestly. We love to rock and we do it for YOU. We want you to feel this thing that we feel. Just let yourself smile as wide as you can, let your mind EXPLODE! DANCE! JUMP! SCREAM! We're exploring. Rock and roll exploring. Let's go exploring together.
