Pitchfork has started a new mega-blog, Altered Zones, which is taking posts from some of the best music blogs* focusing on “small-scale DIY music.”
And hey, there’s a neat song that involves whistling on it. I know nothing about White Fence, so go ahead Weekly Tape Deck:
While best recognized for his work as the frontman for Darker My Love (and as the background singer for The Strange Boys), it’s Tim Presley’s solo exploits that have been keeping our phono needles busy. His debut under the moniker White Fence is absolute ramshackle-scatterbrain-chaos, revealing an equal affinity for the acid-soaked psychedelia of Syd-era Floyd and the noise-caked post-punk of The Fall (see Reformation Post TLC).
Indeed. I’m hearing yogi-era Beatles on this one. And most importantly: brief whistling at the minute mark. Promise-keepers!
