Check out the first-ever White Fence video. It’s kind of hard to believe this is the first official video considering Tim Presley has been performing as White Fence for about six years. The song Like That reminds me of early Who albums. Spoiler alert: Presley doesn’t do very well in jail.
There are a lot of bands that fall into the girl group-surf-garage rock genre. So to really stand out, a band needs to be just different enough and execute really well. The Hollywood, Florida, duo Beach Day (Kimmy Drake and Skyler Black) does both on Native Echoes.
The album, out this week, is another great end of the summer rocker. I’ve really enjoyed listening to this one over the past couple of weeks and can definitely recommend it.
Caribou has a new album, Our Love, coming out in October. Listen to the title track below.
If you want to know why I like this new Beach Day album so much, have a listen.
Native Echoes is out next week.
Listen to a new song from Bass Drum of Death. Left for Dead will appear on the October release, Rip This.
Wild Onion, the new album from Chicago’s Twin Peaks, is a great mix of styles and is a real blast before summer’s end. The album is out today (Tuesday). Fun fact: The city of Chicago derived its name from a Native American word for wild onion.
Hey garage rock fans, here’s your album of the summer. Punk, psychedelic, blues and even a little country, Spider Bags’ Frozen Letter (out Tuesday) is a thoroughly enjoyable album that makes you want to listen to it again and again. Seriously, this one is worth checking out.
The band plays Hideout August 14.
