My first quirky songs post was hugely popular. As it’s been a few years since I posted the original, I figured it was time for a redux. In this edition, I set my sights on Halloween to pull together a small handful of fun, quirky and demented tracks that fit the spookiest day of the… Continue reading 5 Quirky Halloween Songs That Are Great All Year ‘Round
A long night, but no matter. I learned long ago that spending a bit extra time doing something you love… well, it’s a good thing! Stuarto sent along a text asking if I could pick up his 8pm show and I obliged. Being a mere few hours from show time, I just threw together an… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: December 7, 2012
Daytona came onto my radar due to the presence of a member of Harlem. Given that another member is now fully involved in Lace Curtains, yet another garage-centric rock-pop band, I was expecting more of the same. But Daytona is anything but.
Harlem’s Hippies from 2010 was ultimately one of my favorite albums of the year. It’s garage rock/pop was all you want from the genre: gritty, grungy, crude, and entirely raw. Almost too a fault. It’s what made it so good. Well Lace Curtains is the new band of Michael Coomer, vocalist of Harlem.
Man, what a wild week. And I’m not talking about the wild you indie folk are used to, likely boozing it up and partying every night. I’m talking about the working life, the stress of the job, the busy days and exhaustion-laden nights. Going to bed at 9:30; I feel old.
I fixed my tail light. It was a simple matter of checking the fuses, noting that the 8A fuse was blown, and swapping it out. Still having issues with the front indicator and running light, but thanks to the good folk at BMW 2002 FAQ, I should have it figured out in the near future.… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: February 17, 2012
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
The problem with so-called best-of lists, is that they are really just a collection of items organized based on experience and time, in that there will be plenty of albums heard the following year and beyond that will hold just as much weight as these we dub as “Best.” So, as of right now, at… Continue reading FensePost Top 33 and 1/3: The Best Albums of 2010
I know, I’ve owed this one to you, my readers, for a few months now. The plan originally was to concoct a sort of mid-year recap of the first half, dictating a slew of wonderful albums that may or may not come to find a spot on the inevitable end-of-year list. A hint at what… Continue reading 20 Must Hear Albums from 2010: A Mid-Year List
It’s been a few months since I threw together a podcast, so I figured it was about time for another one. Besides, I’ve been working diligently on a mix-tape for a new local pal, Brett Sandström, whom I met after purchasing a Tullycraft single on eBay – he being the seller, both of us being… Continue reading FensePost Podcast Series: FenseCast #3, Summer Heat Part 1
