Psychic Ills: One Track Mind (Video)

Until now, my experience with Psychic Ills (quite embarrassingly) is limited to a split 7-inch with Moon Duo on the flip. On the single is the chilled swagger of “Take Me With You”. This cool, laid back psych-pop has a tinge of the country peeking through the haze that makes me think of driving through… Continue reading Psychic Ills: One Track Mind (Video)

How to Shop on Discogs (or, How I Discovered a Side Project of The Brian Jonestown Massacre)

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. But this post is about how I shop and how I recommend shopping on the music marketplace platform. It’s also about how this method led me… Continue reading How to Shop on Discogs (or, How I Discovered a Side Project of The Brian Jonestown Massacre)

KSVR Radio Show: From a Garage on a Hot Summer Day

It’s summer here in Skagit, and that means the Farmer’s Market is back, it’s time for summer house projects, the Seattle to Portland bike ride is coming up, and the days are, quite frankly, way too long. Light at 4am, light until 10pm; it makes for some early mornings and late (yeah, I’m getting old)… Continue reading KSVR Radio Show: From a Garage on a Hot Summer Day

Mid Year Best of 2013: The Year’s Top Albums from Jan to June

Today (June 6) is FensePost’s seventh birthday, and since I didn’t post anything this morning I kept my head down, powered through and wrapped by mid-year best of 2013 list, covering my top 10 LPs from January to June. Before jumping into the list, let’s go over a few of the more highly anticipated albums… Continue reading Mid Year Best of 2013: The Year’s Top Albums from Jan to June

On the Radio at KSVR: A Psychedelic & Garage Mix

I picked up a new toy a few hours before my show. My bike had been in the shop for a few days with a broken spoke and to get a new chain and cassette (the latter of which was a special order item), and I decided to try out a 2012 model Trek. Ended… Continue reading On the Radio at KSVR: A Psychedelic & Garage Mix

On Air at KSVR: March 8, 2013 Playlist

I received a message from Stuarto requesting I cover his show in the late afternoon hours of Friday, March 8. After a minute or two to think about it, I agreed. In all the times I’ve covered for his show over the past year and a half, I have never done a show that gives… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: March 8, 2013 Playlist

On Air at KSVR: February 22, 2013

I spent quite a bit of time during my February 22 show chatting with Ozarks’ Robbie Augspurger about various items, from music publicity to awesome cars from the 70s and 80s. Turns out he’s quite the photographer as well. Beyond that, not much to say about this playlist. Another eclectic mix of tunes for a… Continue reading On Air at KSVR: February 22, 2013

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

FensePost Top 50: The Best Albums of 2009

2009 is a tough year to judge. I’ve checked out more albums this year than any year in the past. Well over 1,000. And there have been quite a few great ones as well. When this list began, it had 110 albums. I abandoned my top 33 and 1/3 for 45, and then said “screw… Continue reading FensePost Top 50: The Best Albums of 2009

Album Reviews

Forever: Forever [EP Review]

Quick, furious, and externally tempting are the best available adjectives to describe Forever and their self-titled debut EP. Their songs seem to focus on the triumph and/or tyranny of love. Vocalist Shenna Corbridge spends an electrically-fused 15 minutes screaming truths she makes you believe are self-evident. This is a group that says what they want,… Continue reading Forever: Forever [EP Review]
