White Fence - For the Recently Found Innocent
Drag City (USA); 2014 | Pop, Rock
Gentle, psychedelic rock music with some great guitar moments – the penultimate track “Raven on White Cadillic” really shines. Frontman Tim Presley sounds like a world-weary Syd Barrett, nightingale-singing through a warm, beautifully mastered mix.
However, as a whole, For the Recently Found Innocent underwhelms. Poor sequencing was a problem and the album feels directionless and derivative. Will I be playing this on repeat? No. But it’s definitely worth a shot if you’re looking for something understated, inoffensive and full of lo-fi charm.
