    To The Recently Found Innocent explores welcome new directions; rather than messing with a good formula, Presley has opened up to new ways of approaching it.

    After a few listens, the line becomes representative of a larger realization. In acknowledging certain personal and artistic shortcomings, Presley has uncovered a hidden well of confidence and skill that couldn't be contained in his home recordings.

    Presley works quickly--he says he went into the studio with more than 100 possible songs--and without much intermediation between idea and finished piece. This process seems to allow him to absorb many different influences (1960s psych, freak folk, children’s stories, his life), filter them through some subconscious prism, splitting them out as almost but not quite recognizable rainbow colors

    For his fifth long player as White Fence, things have remained very much the same musically.

    The album captures well the irrepressible energy that always simmered under the surface of White Fence’s earlier work.
  6. 67
    Despite the obvious throwbacks and Union Jack-dreaming accents, Presley’s songs, while brief, are more than just genre homages.

    Passable psych-rock that rarely disappoints, but equally never really soars. [Sep 2014, p.117]
