Hear White Fence’s Truly Gnarly New Track

Psychedelia gets a bad rap: go-nowhere druggies listening to songs that never end, right? Psych needs a big of an edge now and then—it needs to be hard, raw, uncontrolled. White Fence, aka Tim Presley of Echo Park, L.A., is here to help.

White Fence’s new album, Cyclops Reap, is due out in April, and if you have any doubts as to its trippy bona fides, here’s an excerpt from Presley’s mission statement of sorts:

"I have cyclops vision now. But I’m not a giant. I changed my name and body only, and stabbed my social nous in the right ear. I still read fear but there are no police this year. I can repeat the same dream. I can let birds talk to me. I’m in jail. I have love and a whistle. I lay where the lotus lay and then spring the frozen flowers on any giving day. I apologize to those put in the trees, but I was gathering the Cyclops reap.

Surreal enough for you, hippie? Great. Now scroll on down and take a listen to the junkyard strains of “Pink Gorilla” whilst picturing yourself in the 1960s. Not the Mad Men ’60s, dammit—I mean the good ones.
