Fense’s Radio Show: May 17, 2013

The past week saw several notable artists — many ranking among my favorites — release new tracks. Camera Obscura distributed a new track off their forthcoming album Desire Lines, Typhoon gave us a stellar digital single, and we heard a new track off the upcoming album from The Moondoggies. On top of that, I continued… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: May 17, 2013

Fense’s Radio Show: October 26, 2012

I don’t know when the last time vinyl was played on KSVR, but by the state of the record players it may have been quite a while. I dropped by the studio mid day on Friday to make sure the turntables worked properly, then came home and put together a split show. The first half,… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 26, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: December 9, 2011

Stuarto Glasser, host of the All Around the World Music Show, called me up a little after 5pm Friday and asked if I could fill in for him.

Stuff that can, in a way,… Continue reading FensePost Podcast: Psychedelic Ambiance Part 1

First and foremost is the song itself — a video must compliment the art to which it is expanding from audio… Continue reading 25 Great Bands, 30 Great Music Videos

FensePost Podcast Series: FenseCast #3, Summer Heat Part 1

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

Small Black: Despicable Dogs [Video]

I found this Small Black video in the trove of videos on the Jagjaguar, Secretly Canadian, Dead Oceans collective Vimeo page. Small Black creates fuzzy lo-fi electronic pop in the vein of romance and various other pleasantries, and “Despicable Dogs” fits the description well. I love the dreamy nature the song takes throughout its four… Continue reading Small Black: Despicable Dogs [Video]
