White Fence: Show Preview

White Fence leader Tim Presley never planned to start a record label, but the songs of San Franciscan Jessica Pratt compelled him to. Last year, he founded Birth Records solely to share Pratt's debut LP of introspective folk balladry with the world. Pratt's homespun collection of supple and dark songs owe much to English folk singers of the '60s. But rather than the image of a Donovan-like singer among fawning admirers in some idyllic park, Pratt's songs are borne of bedroom solitude — albeit one ready for the masses. White Fence deals in homespun psychedelia — fuzz-laden, pulsating and heady. Presley records songs in his Los Angeles bedroom, but his live band deftly adapts each one for the stage.
