White Fence’s John Webster Johns announces debut LP as Jack Name, stream “Pure Terror”


John Webster Johns is currently a touring guitarist for White Fence, but spends much of his time releasing music under various monikers (Fictional Boys and Muzz) and working behind-the-scenes as a studio mastermind (Ariel Pink, Cass McCombs). Next year, the Los Angeles native will release his debut album under his latest project, Jack Name. Titled Light Show, it’s due out January 21st via Drag City imprint God? Records.

In anticipation, Johns has shared the lead single “Pure Terror”. A whirring psych-pop jam that couples his laid-back, muffled vocals with rambunctious, dynamite guitars, it nicely balances the low-key and lo-fi with straight-up wild, technicolor energy. Listen to it below.
