White Fence – Green Balloon 7″

As far as busy years go, Tim Presley of WHITE FENCE is not to be forgotten. One of his latest efforts, the Green Balloon 7″, comes from the Sexbeat/CMRTYZ label right after finishing up with Hair and Family Perfume.

This new 7″ sees some previously unheard tracks added to the ever-growing White Fence catalog, bringing in these three infinitely lysergic psych-pop numbers that seem to melt and become disfigured right before your very ears (eyes?). It’s probably not a far cry to say these songs come from the supposed huge batch of material that Presley originally recorded during the Family Perfume recording sessions, but that’s only a guess. “Green Balloon” is a weirdly inviting track, featuring plenty of bass drum (and bass guitar) thud and jangly percussion to drive the song forward. On top of this you’ll encounter the spastic, psyched-out guitars that swirl and pop throughout the song, making for a challenging listening session as so many of these elements seem to just melt into one another – and that’s just how it goes with White Fence (have you heard Family Perfume yet?). Aside from this, the dynamics are almost definitely playing a few tricks on us, because this track seems to get louder and softer as it plays out – or does it?

Listen to “Green Balloon” and one of the B-sides from the 7″ below. It might be a good idea to grab this 7″ now instead of waiting – I’m still really pissed I never bought his debut s/t on Make a Mess after planning on it so many times, then it sold out. Don’t let that happen to you.
