Yep, I’m getting married in a few days, so I figured it was time to put together a love-themed radio show. I tried to keep it centered around positive love songs, but with indie music, but a few oddities slipped in. In true form, I also made it my latest vinyl-only night.
Following our top EP of 2012, Portland duo (guitarist Daniel Hindman and keyboardist Sarah Versprille of Vetiver) Pure Bathing Culture returns with a new single called “Pendulum” off their forthcoming debut LP, Moon Tides. The new release will hit via the band’s new label, Partisan Records. “Pendulum” seems to expand beyond the simple pop of… Continue reading Pure Bathing Culture: Pendulum (mp3)
While everyone else goes ape sh*t over EPs by Lana Del Rey and Ke$ha, well, we took a different approach and didn’t listen to those artists this year. Instead, last night, I ran through my entire library on iTunes and settled on my top 15 EPs of 2012. Yeah, as these lists go, I’m sure… Continue reading A FensePost Top 15 List: The Best EPs of 2012
Alright, so I have a treat for you. Being that I spent Thanksgiving week on vacation in Vancouver, WA with my parents — yes, a full week — I was out of town for my normal Friday show. Rather than having Stuarto cover for me, as holidays aren’t the best for extra shifts at the… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: November 23, 2012
This show ended up being a bit of a favorites show; we began with a few favorite tracks from the past few years by bands hailing from Sweden including Acid House Kings and their track “Do What You Wanna Do” (which remains one of my all-time favorites). And we continued with several favorites from 2012… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: September 21, 2012
I have no clue what’s going on. Seriously. A blue thing she treats like a baby. Her man has something evil hidden inside that comes out on occasion. She’s all emotional. There are hologram sharks. I’m sorry, but it’s all beyond me. Yes, I’m talking about the new video for “Ivory Coast” by Portland duo… Continue reading Pure Bathing Culture: Ivory Coast (Video)
While I haven’t written about Portland’s Pure Bathing Culture directly, they’ve already become mainstays on both my regular playlist and on my KSVR / KSVU weekly radio show. The duo of Daniel Hindman and Sarah Versprille create quite a full pop sound for there being just two. Early on, I became a big fan of… Continue reading Pure Bathing Culture: EP
Last weekend I did something a bit taboo. No, nothing that bad. What I did was this: I took my email inbox, and I cleared it. I archived everything — over 15,000 unread messages. It had just gotten a bit too out of control. Then, this week, I checked ALL my emails, filtered out what… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: May 25, 2012
We’ve had seven sunny weekends in a row, which must be some kind of record for the Northwest. As such, it’s been the perfect time to take out the Bimmer. And in related news, Andi’s dad thought it would be a fun project to spend a weekend sanding it down and giving it a new… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: May 18, 2012
I didn’t post at all on FensePost last week. That’s crazy. I had been on a roll, pumping out posts on a daily basis, then I hit a wall and needed an immediate break. But my breaks are typically filled with, well, something else. They’re aren’t true breaks, in the informal-synonym-for-vacation sense of the word.
