Club 8: Pleasure

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

Fense’s Radio Show: May 17, 2013

The past week saw several notable artists — many ranking among my favorites — release new tracks. Camera Obscura distributed a new track off their forthcoming album Desire Lines, Typhoon gave us a stellar digital single, and we heard a new track off the upcoming album from The Moondoggies. On top of that, I continued… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: May 17, 2013

Club 8 has released their second video for a song off their eighth LP, Above the City, this time for closing track and lead single “Stop Taking My Time”. This video follows a somewhat disturbing one about animal cruelty for album opener “Kill Kill Kill”.

Club 8: Stop Taking My Time

I admit, I freak out a bit each time I hear of a new undertaking by Johan Angergård – anything by Acid House Kings, The Legends and/or Club 8. The last on the list is Angergård’s project with Karolina Komstedt, who takes lead on vocals; and they’re back with their eighth studio LP, Above the… Continue reading Club 8: Stop Taking My Time

I don’t know when the last time vinyl was played on KSVR, but by the state of the record players it may have been quite a while. I dropped by the studio mid day on Friday to make sure the turntables worked properly, then came home and put together a split show. The first half,… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 26, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: September 21, 2012

This show ended up being a bit of a favorites show; we began with a few favorite tracks from the past few years by bands hailing from Sweden including Acid House Kings and their track “Do What You Wanna Do” (which remains one of my all-time favorites). And we continued with several favorites from 2012… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 21, 2012

We’ve been doing up the floors in our house, stripping out the carpet, repainting the walls, painting the trim and doors, and laying down a rich brown woven bamboo (hence the lateness of this post and the general lack of posts this week). It’s a project that should add equity to our house and, one… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: March 2, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: December 9, 2011

Stuarto Glasser, host of the All Around the World Music Show, called me up a little after 5pm Friday and asked if I could fill in for him. Thinking it would be a great way to attract a few more listeners I agreed. I headed home and put together a playlist of some of my… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: December 9, 2011
