Castle Face Records label head and SF luminary John Dwyer, fed up with live recordings that lacked a certain je ne sais quoi, had the idea to record some friends on his Tascam 388, and he eventually brought on fellow “low budget luminaries” Eric Bauer, Chris Woodhouse, and Bob Marshall for what promises to be quite the unique project. The result was the label’s “Live in San Francisco” record series, and the first band in line for a release is White Fence.
Each LP in the series will come with a thick gloss album jacket with black-and-white photos of the performance, which – keeping in line with the analog theme – were shot on film, not some (gasp!) fancy, modern day DSLR. White Fence’s series opener was recorded at Amnesia and features tracks from across the Tim Presley project’s discography, including Family Perfume Vol. 1 track “Swagger Vets and Double Moon”, which you can check out below, along with the full LP tracklisting. The album is due November 5 and will be fêted with a limited colored vinyl edition that will feature an alternate lenticular cover, “catching the band eternally between two instants of an amazing night at a tiny club full of sweaty, lucky souls.”
And if hearing White Fence live on beautiful, warm vinyl doesn’t satiate your desire for Tim Presley rockin’ in a live setting, be sure to catch the band in January at Great American with Parquet Courts and CCR Headcleaner (full details at the bottom of the post).
