Fense’s Radio Show: September 28, 2012

There were a few unexpected surprises in this week’s show; some great new bands and new tracks from longtime favorites.

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.

Washed Out [Feature]

Washed Out channels an 80s-style synth pop and hones the influence into a soft, electro-atmospheric calm. There’s this airy quality about the songs, from the more electronic “You’ll See It” and “Hold Out” to the softer, laid-back “Feel It All Around”. Washed Out is on par with The Radio Dept. circa “Against The Tide”. It… Continue reading Washed Out [Feature]
