It was directed… Continue reading JEFF The Brotherhood: Hey Friend (Video)

Song Reviews

JEFF The Brotherhood: Shredder [mp3]

“Shredder” lives up to its name, but I honestly wouldn’t expect anything less from JEFF The Brotherhood. The band exudes the shred mentality with wild infectious guitar riffs epic in their near simple, slushy nature backed by heavily beat drums. And they take it to the next level with the inclusion of keyboards. “Shredder” matches… Continue reading JEFF The Brotherhood: Shredder [mp3]

Jeff The Brotherhood: U Got The Look [Video]

Heavy Days by Jeff The Brotherhood may be my sleeper album of the year. It comes and goes, leaving and re-entering my playlist on a moment’s notice. And with each new re-entry, it stays a bit longer and I get a little more blown away. It is garage rock to the max; the band consists… Continue reading Jeff The Brotherhood: U Got The Look [Video]

JEFF the brotherhood: Bone Jam [Video]

“Bone Jam” by JEFF the brotherhood is the epitome of a low-budget music video. And it fits the song and band perfectly. JEFF the brotherhood, like so many bands this year and last, fully realize the term garage band. But where artists like The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and The Splinters and Darlings… Continue reading JEFF the brotherhood: Bone Jam [Video]

Alright, so there’s really no one way to do pretty much anything under the sun. That includes “How to Shop on Discogs” — there really is no RIGHT way.

Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

A long night, but no matter. I learned long ago that spending a bit extra time doing something you love… well, it’s a good thing! Stuarto sent along a text asking if I could pick up his 8pm show and I obliged. Being a mere few hours from show time, I just threw together an… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012

Magic Jake and the Power Crystals: Feature

If you light yourself on fire, you’re damn sure not going to sit around and relax. You’ll roll around on the ground instead, or maybe you’ll just round around in circles like a complete idiot. The need to get off your lazy ass will be unbearable. Listening to Magic Jake and the Power Crystals, in… Continue reading Magic Jake and the Power Crystals: Feature

Fense’s Radio Show: October 5, 2012

With as much psychedelic pop and rock that I’ve been listening to lately, it only made sense to put together a full show featuring the sub-genres. Of course, I also threw in some beloved garage rock to keep things sane. For the first time in ages, I took the KSVR and KSVU airwaves and played… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 5, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: August 24, 2012

Visiting the parents is often a stressful time. Despite their incessantly busy schedules, they have actually learned to relax in retirement despite their hectic lifestyle. I visited them two weekends ago now. Hence the absence of an August 17 radio show recap; there was none. Instead, I participated in my brother’s wedding.
