2015 marks five years since Teen Daze first debuted on the music scene with a four-song EP called Beach Dreams. In the years and countless releases (many of them digital singles) since, Teen Daze has flirted with several genres. Early on, Beach Dreams encompassed his style in a very descriptive way, while more recently Jamison… Continue reading Teen Daze Finally Tops An Early Favorite In “Morning Glory”
The latest track by Teen Daze, “Ice on the Windowsil”, is the first track to debut off his forthcoming LP Glacier. It features a surreal spacial sound, as subtle as it is dreamy. Given this, as you can imagine, it is far removed from his early work on Beach Dreams (2010). There is a feeling… Continue reading Teen Daze: Ice on the Windowsil
Each year I shun Christmas music like it’s the plague. It begins too early, is far too repetitive, and, quite frankly, is a bit boring. That is, until this year. It began with “The Week Between”, a new track off One Christmas at a Time, an LP that finds Jonathan Coulton and John Roderick (The… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: It’s An Indie Christmas
A new Teen Daze song is like a wrapped gift. You almost never know what you’re going to get. “Union”, off the band’s forthcoming LP The Inner Mansions is a perfect example. The song features Frankie Rose and mixes fuzzy pop sensibilities with the part beach, part chill, part dream pop Teen Daze has flirted… Continue reading Teen Daze: Feature
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
It is happening again. After two dormant weeks of doing virtually nothing (OK, very little is more like it), evenings this week were spent spinning vinyl by The Smiths and painting Andi’s sewing room in preparation for putting in the bamboo flooring this weekend.
I wasn’t originally planning on doing a show this evening, but decided to take my normal spot behind the microphone anyway. So the playlist didn’t begin coming together until the evening of. There was no theme, it was all variety; folk to electronic to noise rock.
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
My did I love that Beach Dreams EP by Teen Daze. It perfectly encapsulated those late winter days, when we all longed for sunnier weather. Now that things are warming up, Teen Daze is back with a new EP and this time they’ve got Waaga Records behind them. The first track is “Surface” and it’s… Continue reading Teen Daze: Surface MP3
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
