White Fence: September 18, 2013 Glasslands – Flac/MP3/Streaming

September 25, 2013

Its hard to believe that it had been since early 2012 since we had last seen White Fence live. We were so impressed with the band’s high-energy authentic mid-60s styled psychedelia at a gig opening for Woods at Bowery, and then again at the NYCTaper 2011 CMJ show. I was also lucky to catch them at SXSW 2012. Last Wednesday at Glasslands, it was encouraging to see that eighteen months later, White Fence continues to churn out kinetic proto-psych with confidence and abundant energy. Tim Presley’s supporting band seems to be the same group that he had at SXSW ’12, and at Glasslands they were tight and in perfect sync — certainly necessary to keep up with the quick chord and tempo changes in the music. For instance, we’re streaming “Baxter Corner”, a song that is two minutes on record but live is stretched out to almost seven — a lengthy high-tempo jam that features the talents of each member of the quartet. The setlist contained quite a number of older songs, but also featured a heavy dose of the newest White Fence album Cyclops Reap (Castle Face Records). After this outstanding show, we hope it won’t be another eighteen months before we see White Fence again.

I recorded this set with the installed NYCTaper rig at Glasslands, and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
