MSG – Songs From A Gated Community now on vinyl

songs from a gated community

So it has happened – our good friend and fellow musician Tim Wenzel has succeeded in achieving vinyl – his kickstarter was a success! Tim has a been a member of a couple of Field Hymns projects: the sloppy skate punk of Yes, Father and the glorious and silly solo project White Glove. What is Songs From A Gated Community about? Well luckily I have a quote right here:

“This is the story of a kid growing up in a Gated Community during the late 1980′s and early 1990′s. It portrays a time when music was fun and simpler. Left with his Grandmother’s keyboard when she passed away, Tim Wenzel began to write songs that reflected his environment. His influences were security guards, riding bikes, eating candy, cars with bass, Madonna, metal detecting, school dances, working at KFC and the discovery of rap music. This record captures the exciting and carefree feeling that kids have during their teenage years and is a voice for those who like to party!”

FH015 White Glove

RIYL: Shredding and Camel Lights, brahs, 80′s California gated communities

White Glove is hazy sunsets over scraped and sunburned knees, the freedom of tortured, ugly youth and the anger of the perpetually misunderstood. It is the heat of the day caught in empty swimming pools as bodies soar and plunge on bearings baked dry by the SoCal sun. It is the loneliness of the unpopular stretched like a skin over wet asphalt and tight with warm gin. It is the breath of a neighborhood thick with both kin & enemies from a hollow place that still feels like home. Like early JFA, Sebadoh & Gangrene played by the most sensitive motherfucker in California, White Glove is the sound from your basement, circa Summer 1987.

(White Glove is Tim Wenzel of Portland, OR)
