San Francisco’s Make a Mess Records (Grass Widow,
Brilliant Colors, Traditional Fools) is proud to unleash
upon the masses the self-titled debut LP from LA psych-
pop auteur White Fence.
Wander into the sweltering Cali smog to find yourself
transported into a lysergic pop netherworld, where White

abusing a Vox, the record oscillates between a sun-dappled
English meadow, a crumbling SoCal suburban bedroom,
and a riotous Sunset Strip leather gang knife fight, with
the kind of warped precision and purity that marks the
wolves from the sheep and the profound from the pretend
in this instant online age. You know what I mean.
Connoisseurs of the physical format will be richly re-
warded with surgical-grade vinyl and a gorgeous fold-out
