Cock & Swan: Secret Angles

Dig deep into the FensePost archives and you’ll discover two things. First is the site’s launch date, which is essentially 666: June 6, 2006. Second is that one of the earliest reviews is that of Cock & Swan‘s Noon Hum EP. Hand packaged with a personal note to KZUU, I talked up the EP for… Continue reading Cock & Swan: Secret Angles

On the Radio

Fense’s Radio Show: October 14, 2011

Being that my typical night consists of hitting the sack at around 10pm, and that my new radio show is Friday nights from 10pm to midnight, I figured that my second show would center around the theme of sleep. So I pieced together a playlist of bedroom pop, chill wave, dreamy shoegaze and what I’ve… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 14, 2011

Lists And Mixes

FensePost Top 33 and 1/3: The Best Albums of 2010

Noon Hum was… Continue reading Cock And Swan: Unrecognize [Album Review]

For desert, a delicious slice of gluten free cake courtesy Andi (the girlfriend), whose cake photo you can see in this post.

Cock And Swan: Mashmallow Sunset

As we move through time, our bodies mature. In most cases, so do the capabilities our minds possess; we are able to piece together more and more complex puzzles, complete more difficult challenges and tasks that we or others require, and reach, hoping to accomplish, all those goals that once seemed so unfathomably far away.… Continue reading Cock And Swan: Mashmallow Sunset

Cock And Swan: Noon Hum EP [Album Review]

I listen to at least ten new albums each week. With that amount of exposure, it can be difficult to discern one artist from another, the next album from the last. Despite such audible clutter, I review little electronic music. Here’s an exception. Cock and Swan are Johnny and Ola. They record in Bothell, Washington—just… Continue reading Cock And Swan: Noon Hum EP [Album Review]
