Last week a package arrived in the mail and the completist in me went absolutely apeshit. 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. The Obsession Begins Let’s take a trip back twelve years to… Continue reading Voxtrot: Berin, Without Return (or, The Completist in Me Just Went Nuts)
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. Commentary on… Continue reading Eleven: The Path Forward
Club 8 embarks on yet another journey with their new (and 9th) LP, Pleasure. A slight departure from 2013’s Above The City, which was upbeat yet put a slightly darker dance spin into the Club 8 repertoire, Club 8 continues down that darker path by forgoing the positive. Instrumentally, the band hones their synth-wave skills,… Continue reading Club 8: Pleasure
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”
30 years ago today, Coca Cola launched its ill-fated New Coke. While that was a major fiasco, I sat down to determine if, thirty years later, the newly released song of the same name by LA nosie-rock outfit HEALTH would follow suit.
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
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!
Let’s take a trip back in time. The year is 2006, and FensePost is only a few months old. I stumble upon a newly relocated indiepop artist called BOAT. The band moved from Chicago to Seattle and landed a spot on the Magic Marker Records roster for their debut LP Songs That You Might Not… Continue reading Unlikely Friends Release Solid Gold Cowboy on Jigsaw Records
A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show. Now the duo has announced their first new LP, to be called Wizards On The Beach, in seven years. The new LP is plush with melodic instrumentation and harmonic vocals.
Cock & Swan return with a new album in 2015 called What Was Life? Johnny Goss and Ola Hungerford’s latest effort continues what the duo, now married, did with 2013’s Secret Angels.
