Fense DJs at Bumbershoot: The Playlist

Dev Sherlock from Hype Machine asked me to DJ a brief set at their Bumbershoot tent. The prospect was a nerve-wracking one: I DJ weekly at KSVR, but broadcasting behind the curtain of radio is completely different than being in front of people. Still, I said yes and put together a playlist.

Gap Dream: Chill Spot (Video)

Hazy psychedelic pop and hip hop do not go well together. Yet with his new single, Gap Dream’s Gabe Fulvimar pulls off the mash-up effortlessly. Never have two so mismatched genres worked this well together. “Chill Spot” is the new song’s name, and it can be found as the A-side on Gap Dream’s new 7-inch… Continue reading Gap Dream: Chill Spot (Video)

On the Radio at KSVR: A Psychedelic & Garage Mix

I picked up a new toy a few hours before my show. My bike had been in the shop for a few days with a broken spoke and to get a new chain and cassette (the latter of which was a special order item), and I decided to try out a 2012 model Trek. Ended… Continue reading On the Radio at KSVR: A Psychedelic & Garage Mix

Fense’s Radio Show: October 5, 2012

With as much psychedelic pop and rock that I’ve been listening to lately, it only made sense to put together a full show featuring the sub-genres. Of course, I also threw in some beloved garage rock to keep things sane. For the first time in ages, I took the KSVR and KSVU airwaves and played… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 5, 2012

Song Reviews

Gap Dream: Generator MP3

Unlike most albums, there is greatness behind every single track on Gap Dream by Gap Dream. My listening habits have commenced as such: obsessive listens to “58th Street Fingers” and “Slave” followed by the same with “Go Ahead”. Now dominating my playlist are “My Other Man” and “Leather”. And this in just a few short… Continue reading Gap Dream: Generator MP3

Fense’s Radio Show: September 14, 2012

The week leading up to this week’s radio show was spent taking it easy. It’s almost the end of summer, and after several consecutive weekends of house projects that overlapped into weekday evenings, it was a needed break. The resulting playlist was a mix of randomly-pieced together new releases paired with some classic favorites such… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 14, 2012

Gap Dream: Feature

Gap Dream is the project of Cleveland resident Gabriel Fulvimar. Fulvimar’s self-titled album under the Gap Dream name appears to be heavily influenced by Nuggets-era 60s psych rock. The band has been labeled as everything from garage rock (which is a tab I would attribute to them, but only slightly) to surf-rock (not quite hearing… Continue reading Gap Dream: Feature
