FensePost originally launched on June 6, 2006 out of a small house on the hill in Pullman, WA.
It was created as an expressive outlet and music discovery channel by recent WSU graduate Andy Fenstermaker (hey, that’s me, in that photo below!), who loved introducing folks to music he felt was, in the wise words of Bill and Ted, Most Excellent.
Fast forward to today: he’s written thousands of reviews and features, and FensePost has seen dozens of one-time and regular authors alike. FensePost begins it’s version five…or six or seven. Something like that. Let’s call it Version X.
Fresh off a multi-year-long hiatus, FensePost am back with a vengeance.
FensePost X covers new and old alike, but is entirely devoted the the physical release, be it vinyl or cassette or uniquely packaged compact disc. With the emphasis on the physical comes incorporation of original photos and imagery, external embeds of audio (because, duh, it’s a music blog), and more.
To go along with all things new, how about a new location? No longer is FensePost local to Northwest Washington. The blog is headquartered in Plano, TX as of March 2020.
I hope you enjoy the new and improved FensePost.
For previews of upcoming posts, photos of vinyl from my collection and my crate digging ventures, and other shots relating to an assortment of topics from motorcycles to healthy living, follow Fense on Instagram.
I receive countless tracks and albums via email each day. It is best to assume that anything I/we cover came to us in this manner, though most of that has become clutter. Occasional pieces surface from those means.
Any old, downloadable songs that you may dig up are provided for sampling purposes only. I haven’t posted such things in several years with the domination of streamable content.
I am a strong proponent of supporting artists and musicians and the independent labels that release their music (not to mention the PR folks they employ). If you like what you hear, please support these fine folks by purchasing their music be it digitally or in physical form.
Just buy it already, damnit.
