JP's CMJ 2014 Day 5: Slowdive, Low, Moon Duo, White Fence, A Place to Bury Strangers

I promised myself this would be the day I planned everything—the day I wouldn’t have to rush, I’d be where I had to be, when I had to be there, arriving in a calm, collected manner, the whole day. I kept my promise inasmuch as my day starting late, cutting some of the showcases I thought about running to, and meeting my aunt and uncle for a beer at Smorgasborg. I’ve learned that, for the most part, at CMJ, if you miss a band playing an afternoon set, chances are you’ll be able to see them at an evening set. Or better yet, a late night set. - Keep reading JP Basileo's reporting of Day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon.

   

White Fence shares exclusive 7" b-side

Tim Presley, known for releasing music last year at an unheard of rate under the name White Fence, is at it again. With an alarming five albums, one of them being a two-disc set that came out in a little less than a year ago, he's gearing up for the release of his new album, Cyclops Reap, on April 9th. Songs on the album include Fragility, Pink Gorilla, New Edinburgh and Chairs in the Dark - all hold true to the psychedelic rock feel that we all know and love. Presley’s new song, "Fragility", is written like a delicate love poem, which endows you with a relaxing tinge while evoking big emotions as well. However, "Pink Gorilla" is one of the more obscure songs on the album; make sure to leave the candles and romance at home because this one will induce an obnoxious amount of dancing. Presley doesn’t let avid listeners down, as Cyclops Reap is surely a great attribute to his ongiong legacy of keeping up with the ever-lasting sounds of garage. - Kayla Hay
