White Fence – Live in San Francisco
Castle Face Records
★★★★ (out of 5 stars)

If there’s one record you need in your life to fully enjoy the open-window weather we’ve been experiencing lately, it’s White Fence’s Live in San Francisco. The release kicks off a new series from Castle Face Records, with the ambitious mission of capturing better live records by reverting to small budget tactics, relying on a simple Tascam 388 recorder to capture the DIY magic. I hope that recorder gets put to further good use, because from the 11-second intro, “Backwards,” to the closing track, “Breathe Again,” this unkempt album elevates White Fence’s Tim Presley into a rock giant whose music feels urgent and important in a way that will make you miss MTV Unplugged, even with all the YouTube videos in the world at your fingertips.
