White Fence:

Tim Presley’s White Fence is the musical equivalent of the drug rug you wrap yourself in when things get too intense. Warm, wooly, warped and eminently ear-wormy, his meandering creations have the crackle of home-tracked intimacy, the thousand yard stare of prime era Syd Barrett, and the restless inventiveness and tireless output we champion here at Castle Face Records.

Parquet Courts:

Though made up of Texan transplants, Parquet Courts are a New York band. Throw out the countless shallow Brooklyn bands of the blasé 2000s: "Light Up Gold" is a conscious effort to draw from the rich culture of the city – the bands like Sonic Youth, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground that are not from New York, but of it. A panoramic landscape of dilapidated corner-stores and crowded apartments is superimposed over bare-bones Americana, leaving little room for romance or sentiment. It’s punk, it’s American, it’s New York… it’s the color of something you were looking for.
