Fense’s Radio Show: August 3, 2012

Andi and I went to the beach this past weekend. And now we’re engaged, around five years and five days after our official first date. We’re pretty excited and have been talking to all our old friends about the plans (completely unofficial at this time); most likely a June 2013 wedding. I sense a show… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: August 3, 2012

Port St. Willow: Holiday (Album Review)

If there was anything off Port St. Willow‘s EP from 2010 that could have been emphasized more, in my opinion, it would have been more percussion.

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

Yesterday we covered a new track from Portland folk outfit Death Songs called “Wounds” off the new PDX Pop Now! compilation. We talked a little bit about the band and the song, and had a few words to say about the organization as well. That wasn’t enough; it’s high time I let slip a little… Continue reading PDX Pop Now! 2011 Edition

Port St. Willow: Even // Wasteland [Album Review]

Port St. Willow is the project of Nick Principe of Portland, OR, who says his album Even // Wasteland is “a record about standing in your own way.” After scrapping the origins of the project, Principe built it again from scratch. After an hour with Even // Wasteland (and knowing nothing of what came before),… Continue reading Port St. Willow: Even // Wasteland [Album Review]
