Teen Daze Finally Tops An Early Favorite In “Morning Glory”

2015 marks five years since Teen Daze first debuted on the music scene with a four-song EP called Beach Dreams. In the years and countless releases (many of them digital singles) since, Teen Daze has flirted with several genres. Early on, Beach Dreams encompassed his style in a very descriptive way, while more recently Jamison… Continue reading Teen Daze Finally Tops An Early Favorite In “Morning Glory”

Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

I see quite a contradiction here. Elin Berlin is the face behind Swedish blog Youth Knows No Pain. In it, for the most part, she seems to maintain a sunny and bright disposition. But things aren’t always as they seem; by night she records under the moniker Eternal Death, a meditative project with Johan Angergård… Continue reading Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP

Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

My love of Hayden’s music goes way back. Back, in fact, twenty years to his sophomore release, Everything I Long For. I’ve always been a fan of his mopey Canadian folk rock. As a twenty-year career will do, his sound has evolved quite drastically. Still with a hint of sadness, modern Hayden tracks are more… Continue reading Hayden Drops New Single, “Hey Love” – New LP out Soon!

New X-Mas Tunes by Nicholas Krgovich of No Kids & P:ano!

Holy !*&%( It’s the Holidays Already! That means it’s been around three months since I last posted on FensePost. Not good. Very bad. Coal for me this holiday. But the good news is that Nicholas Krgovich (of No Kids, backer of Mount Eerie, K-Recs favorite, etc.) has put together a free Christmas EP! Tune in… Continue reading New X-Mas Tunes by Nicholas Krgovich of No Kids & P:ano!

Dream Police to release “Hypnotized” Nov. 11 on Sacred Bones

I have made it no secret that The Men‘s 2013 LP, New Moon, was among my favorite releases of the year. It marked a new pinnacle for the band, in my opinion; an arena slightly more accessible to the common listener and a bit more in line with my own personal tastes. Unfortunately, this year’s… Continue reading Dream Police to release “Hypnotized” Nov. 11 on Sacred Bones

Ty Segall’s “Manipulator” Marries Garage Rock and Glam

After a far-too-lengthy hiatus, I have returned. And my gaze first turns toward prolific rocker Ty Segall‘s new LP, Manipulator. Last year I became a bit obsessed with early T. Rex, as in the stuff they released pre “T” under the guise Tyrannosaurus Rex. In particular, the album Beard of Stars. Around the same time,… Continue reading Ty Segall’s “Manipulator” Marries Garage Rock and Glam
