The Ty Segall collaborator, Tim Presley aka White Fence, is set to release his new album Cyclops Reaps on April 9th via Thee Oh Sees home label Castle Face. “Pink Gorilla” is the first cut off of that album, which you could check out below.
In an official press release, Presley spoke on the inspiration for the album:
In the span of 4 1/2 years. I’ve lived in two different apartments and have used three different rooms during this time. All in Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA, only a couple miles from one another. After the death of my father in 2008 I started writing and recording non-stop in these rooms. I can’t say it was directly because of that trauma, but I think deep down it might have much to do about it. This record was initially going to be a collection of the many songs trapped between the 4 White Fence LP’s. As i was putting that together, there were more coming. a better crop. i couldn’t stop. So, instead of a retrospective i said ‘Fuck It’. might as well use the most current songs of the bunch.
