Ormonde: Machine [Album Review]

Anna-Lynne Williams and Robert Gomez, the illustrious duo that is Ormonde, have been invading my private spectrum for quite a while now.  Several years ago, and old high school chum (more of a friend of a friend type) took up drumming duties for a little band I had sort of heard of before known as… Continue reading Ormonde: Machine [Album Review]

Bobby Joe Ebola & The Children Macnuggits Live at Backspace [04.07.12]

In almost any other city in the world, the crowd at Backspace may have been considered….to say the least, a bit odd.  Angel headed hipsters all decked out in their finest flannel shirts and skinny jeans, and fueled by the spirit in which the Goofpunx Festival provides annually (and maybe a few cans of PBR).… Continue reading Bobby Joe Ebola & The Children Macnuggits Live at Backspace [04.07.12]

Flying Spiders: Live at Zola [01.21.12]

Long gone are the days when hip hop music was simply about how flashy your car is or how great blood diamonds look around your neck.  Nowadays it is more important to have a good head on your shoulders, a great rhythm, and maybe even a live full 8 piece live band?  And  here in… Continue reading Flying Spiders: Live at Zola [01.21.12]

Turf War: Years of Living Dangerously (Album Review)

I love straight up rock and roll.  Well, not just rock and roll, but the dirty kind!  You know the type.  The kind of group that harmonizes as well as the Velvet Underground, yet springs and bangs across a soundboard like Sonic Youth.  Whenever this type of blend happens, you are sure to find something… Continue reading Turf War: Years of Living Dangerously (Album Review)

Thom Carter: Strange Dreams (Album Review)

He’s been known by many names over the years.  For avid FensePost readers, Menhirs of Er Grah will probably ring a bell.  For avid Thom Carter followers, March Rosetta, Black Crown, Minimal States, Needleleaf, and a few more names might seem a bit more recognizable.  But, now, we have Mr. Carter directly in the flesh.… Continue reading Thom Carter: Strange Dreams (Album Review)

Portugal. The Man: So American (Video)

Nothing says America like Corona bottle juggling and swigs of Maker’s Mark being taken directly from the bottle.  Trips to the beach, poorly trimmed beards, and an overall don’t-give-a-damn attitude, mixed with a wonderment for what the morrow might bring.  Yep, these subjects can pretty much sum up the feeling of ease we Americans sometimes… Continue reading Portugal. The Man: So American (Video)

The Dustbowl Revival: Holy Ghost Station (Album Review)

Pour out some sweat tea, fire up the banjo, warm up the rocking chair, and get ready for some good old fashioned Americana rock that will easily set your soul aglow and leave you with aspirations towards shucking and diving as The Dustbowl Revival serenade you with some of the most perfect blend of blues,… Continue reading The Dustbowl Revival: Holy Ghost Station (Album Review)

Anja McCloskey: And Her Head (Video)

What better way to visually express the beauty of Anja McCloskey‘s exquisite vocals and accordion based folk music than through interpretive dance, right?  And better yet, how about a setting that is reminiscent of any one of the Twilight movies, but make it far more interesting and relevant (to anything really).  Then throw in some… Continue reading Anja McCloskey: And Her Head (Video)

Robin Grey: The Nearest Door (Album Review)

London’s finest breath of fresh air has returned to us once again.  And on his third outing, The Nearest Door, the lovely Robin Grey gets even more personal than we have heard in the past.  He has many a tale and lament to tell and confess.  With his distinctively English vocals, and beautiful interpretations of… Continue reading Robin Grey: The Nearest Door (Album Review)

Beneath Wind and Waves: Non-etre (Album Review)

Let’s just get this out of the way right now, if you ever use the line “you’re the sugar to my tea”, you should be getting laid.  Portland based singer/songwriter Shawn Lawson Freeman definitely knows this.  And when you sing and play guitar in the fashion of Sting or Justin Nozuka, yet have a real depth… Continue reading Beneath Wind and Waves: Non-etre (Album Review)
