W-X: SELF-TITLED

November 28th, 2015

Here, Presley invites us behind the curtain, and the reveal is delightful, if a bit disorienting. Across 20 tracks, Presley dabbles in rubbery, tight-lipped funk (“Running from the Dogs”), cut-and-paste sound collage (“Copping in the Afternoon,” “Restless Leg”), noisy reverb-rock (“Clean It Glen”), burbling hip-hop beats (“The Lurk”) and swirling synth-psych exercises (“Dancing Lips,” “Brazilian Worm Band”). Occasionally—“Steer Clear,” for example—Presley lifts his veil and shows off the fuzzy pop chops that has made him one of this city’s vital artists over the past decade. But those are palate cleansers in this set.

DRINKS: HERMITS ON HOLIDAY

August 14th, 2015

Velvet-throated folksinger Cate Le Bon first met good friend Tim Presley when his band opened for hers at a gig in Los Angeles. Instantly a very smitten Presley prompted Le Bon to tour the U.S. with him as the guitarist for his California psych-rock outfit White Fence. She agreed, and with time the pair found they were far better working together than they ever were apart. Thus is the origin story of Drinks.

LOLIPALOOZA 2015 @ THE ECHO/ECHOPLEX

June 29th, 2015

The wonderful people at Lolipop Records held its second annual Lolipalooza at The Echo and The Echoplex on Saturday. The sweet vocals of Elizabeth Le Fey of Globelamp got things started on the patio a little after noon and the party ended with Tim Presley and company of White Fence inside The Echoplex. There was comedy, food and many good times as over 30 bands (who most of us know very well) dazzled us with their musical talents.

WHITE FENCE + CHERRY GLAZERR @ NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM

April 13th, 2015

The April edition of First Fridays at the Natural History Museum might go down in history as one of the rowdiest. Local faves White Fence and Cherry Glazerr recently turned in incendiary sets at last month’s Burgerama 4, and fans continued to show their support by packing tightly into the museum’s Mammal Hall. Extra security guards were on hand for both performances to make sure the enthusiastic (and moshing) fans didn’t crash through the gate and flood the stage.
