Prolific garage psych dude Tim “White Fence” Presley is back with another 7” to get us all warmed up for his forthcoming album ‘Cyclops Reap’. On the A side there’s ‘Pink Gorilla’, which is classic White Fence - a tinny vocal line that sounds like it’s been phoned in, or perhaps hurriedly sung over the fence from next door’s garden, accompanies a slice of garagey psych-pop with clear British influences like The Byrds and The Kinks and The Zombies and even the Stones.

As for his contemporaries, he reminds me a little of Ty Segall, who he of course made the excellent ‘Hair’ LP with last year, but Presley has a habit of pushing the lo-fi aspects of his music to the fore for a thin, reedy, sometimes broken-sounding aesthetic which can be a bit hit and miss. On this single it works great, though, with a tinny grunge-laced r’n’b pop monster on the A side and two great non-album tracks on the flip - the album’s titular bit of Syd Barrett-esque schizophrenia with a cool lazy BJM-ish groove, and then a breathy, laid back AOR number to close which reminds me of Big Troubles or Triptides. Very good.
