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)

Crack-Up with Fleet Foxes: “Third of May” is a Little Early.

After 6 full years of nothing new by Fleet Foxes, they return in 2017 with their third LP, Crack-Up on June 16. A lot has changed in the past 6 years. Frontman Robin Pecknold ditched his beard (as seen in the photo below by Shawn Brackbill.

Formative: The Prelude to a Musical Autobiography

This is the introduction of my new Formative series in which I recount, somewhat autobiographically, how an artist or band lent itself to substantial moments in throughout my life. These are pivotal moments, both from an obsessive, music-loving sense, as well as the personal lifetime milestone sense. Through time, I hope to discuss the works… Continue reading Formative: The Prelude to a Musical Autobiography

Voxtrot: Berin, Without Return (or, The Completist in Me Just Went Nuts)

Years after its original limited release of just 400 copies, I finally had in my possession the long lost (at least for me) Voxtrot single, Berlin, Without Return.

Eleven: The Path Forward

No, eleven isn’t just a play on my favorite new TV show of 2016, Stranger Things. It’s a reminder to myself that 2017 is the eleventh year FensePost has been in existence, and the year that I take a new path forward in the content I create as I rebuild the FensePost following.

Where Has FensePost Gone?

I can count on two hands the number of posts FensePost has published in the past two months. The same for the two months before that, and on back for likely six to eight months. For a blog that once prided itself on near daily posts for seven years, this is far from the norm.… Continue reading Where Has FensePost Gone?
