Continuing the countdown to my favorite record of 2012, today I present numbers 11 through 20.
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
It’s fund drive time at KSVR and KSVU, and that means spending a little extra time in the studio. I arrived early and accompanied Stuarto during his show then he accompanied me during mine. I snapped the above shot of Stuarto before I took over the mic. He had an oldies theme going, playing tunes… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 12, 2012
I always get excited to hear something new by Letting Up Despite Great Faults. Their style of slightly fuzzed-out pop paired with a light reverb-laden jangle in the guitars and an electro-pop-ish synth beat is thoroughly enjoyable. Their new song “Visions” fits right in.
I know it’s a little late, but yesterday’s project was to get some vegetables in the ground. I planted spinach, onions, oregano, and broccoli. The El Camino got a full load of three-way soil and I finally filled my raised garden bed. That’s why this post didn’t go live yesterday; that being said, my goal… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: July 27, 2012
It’s hard to imagine that just a few short months ago we were enjoying sunny summer days. 2011 was my best year yet, having achieved a few milestones: four and a half years running FensePost, riding my bike from Seattle to Portland and logging over 1,000 total on those two wheels between January and December,… Continue reading FensePost Top 24: The Best EPs of 2011
Being sick is terrible. I’ve been fighting something nasty since Tuesday. Luckily the worst was out of the way fast — after recording a 101 degree temperature Tuesday night, the fever subsided and I’ve slowly returned to a state that’s manageable. I was still a bit stuffed up on the 25th, but by 10pm all… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 25, 2011
One thing you can always count on with Letting Up Despite Great Faults is their ability to put together an astonishing video. With both “Teenage Tide” and “Our Younger Noise”, the band found a great balance between the modern world and fantasy. They do it again with “Sophia In Gold” off their 2011 EP, Paper… Continue reading Letting Up Despite Great Faults: Sophia In Gold (Video)
For me, Letting Up Despite Great Faults has always evoked a sense of youthful bliss, carefree and unburdened by the trials of life, and elevated by the prospect of new love. These feelings are, frankly, what could only be described as beautiful. The band has returned with a new video for the song “Teenage Tide”… Continue reading Letting Up Despite Great Faults: Teenage Tide (Video)
I really dug Letting Up Despite Great Faults‘ debut self-titled LP. In fact, “Our Younger Noise” was one of my favorite videos of 2009. So getting wind of a new EP in the mix was pretty exciting. “Teenage Tide” is off that EP and it finds the band picking up where their debut left off.… Continue reading Letting Up Despite Great Faults: Teenage Tide (MP3)
