Fishboy: IMAVOLCANO (Video Premiere)

As I write this, I’m hungry. And I’m watching a brand new video by Fishboy for “IMAVOLCANO” that features pizza. I’m about to head up to Bellingham with my new wife and go to Rudy’s, which has an awesome half-price deal on Wednesdays. We’ll be stocking up with leftovers. For now, I’ll watch this awesome… Continue reading Fishboy: IMAVOLCANO (Video Premiere)

Fishboy Releases “Classic Creeps” Acoustic, Live and with a Tour Diary Comic!

Fishboy is one of my favorite bands because frontman Eric Michener approaches music in a different way than most musicians. His albums, at least the latest two in Classic Creeps and Albatross, follow stories chronologically throughout the album. They’re amusing, funny and lighthearted. While Classic Creeps was originally released back in 2011, Michener recently released… Continue reading Fishboy Releases “Classic Creeps” Acoustic, Live and with a Tour Diary Comic!

On the Radio

Fense’s Radio Show: March 23, 2012

Another variety show, no particular theme. It was set to be a sunny weekend, and that meant hitting the road. After a late Friday night at the station, I woke up early, grabbed my bike and went on a solid 10 mile ride. It was the first of the sort for 2012; the first of… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: March 23, 2012

On the Radio

Fense’s Radio Show: November 18, 2011

This show began like any other, but without the transition difficulties. All was smooth. The music, on the other hand, was not. After a long, satisfying week, I was in need of some loud, abrasive rock music. But it wasn’t all like that. Due to the cold weather, I mixed in some beach pop, fuzzy… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 18, 2011

Oh Fishboy, you never fail to amuse. We interviewed Fishboy’s Eric Michener a few months back about his new LP, Classic Creeps, which finally came out this week. Yeah, we’ve been rocking to it since January and can contest to its total awesomeness. Well, in celebration of the release, Michener, aka Fishboy, put together a… Continue reading Fishboy: Alyson Revere [Video]

An Interview with Eric Michener of Fishboy

The paths of Erich Michener (the man behind Fishboy) and myself (Andrew Fenstermaker) crossed in October of 2007 at a little dive somewhere on the south end of Manhattan. It was the annual College Music Journal festival and HHBTM was having an event. They crossed again sometime later in Seattle, a visit that, oddly enough,… Continue reading An Interview with Eric Michener of Fishboy

Album Reviews

Various Artists: Wish I’d Kept A Scrapbook (A Tribute to Tullycraft) [Album Review]

When I saw there was a new compilation devoted to hailing one of the greatest northwest bands of all time (yes, Tullycraft), I got pretty excited. When I saw that the tracklist included bands from famed labels like Tullycraft’s very own Magic Marker Records, as well as HHBTM, Matinee, and even recent favorite weePOP, my… Continue reading Various Artists: Wish I’d Kept A Scrapbook (A Tribute to Tullycraft) [Album Review]

FensePost Podcast Series: FenseCast #2, Cooking With Fense

Tonight I hit the kitchen to compile the second FensePost podcast, or FenseCast, while cooking up one of my signature dishes: spicy steak enchiladas with homemade sauce. For desert, a delicious slice of gluten free cake courtesy Andi (the girlfriend), whose cake photo you can see in this post. Unlike the first podcast, this one… Continue reading FensePost Podcast Series: FenseCast #2, Cooking With Fense

A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums of 2007

Let me tell you a story. In 2007 some notable things happened. I attended the annual music festival SXSW (the image above is of myself and The Lovely Sparrows’ Shawn Jones, taken by Abandoned Love Records/Virgin Of The Birds’ Jon Rooney), I grew a mustache, and I met a beautiful girl named Andi at the… Continue reading A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums of 2007
