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.
Man, what a wild week. And I’m not talking about the wild you indie folk are used to, likely boozing it up and partying every night. I’m talking about the working life, the stress of the job, the busy days and exhaustion-laden nights. Going to bed at 9:30; I feel old.
The video for The Ettes‘ “Teeth” reminds me a bit of “Red Light Bulb” from Madeline — if only in its gender-bending nature. This Nashville band blends the heritage of their hometown with an old-timey folk-like garage sound. It includes a wicked guitar solo, country-tinged folk-pop vocals, and a cool guitar swagger.
