Alright, so there’s really no one way to do pretty much anything under the sun. That includes “How to Shop on Discogs” — there really is no RIGHT way. But this post is about how I shop and how I recommend shopping on the music marketplace platform.
It’s also about how this method led me to discover a side project of a band I deem to be one of the greats: The Brian Jonestown Massacre.Read More »How to Shop on Discogs (or, How I Discovered a Side Project of The Brian Jonestown Massacre)
I’ve been crushing on The Fresh & Onlys since their widely heralded 2009 LP Grey-Eyed Girls. (Hard to believe that… Read More »A Retrospective Look at Animal of One by The Fresh & Onlys
I see quite a contradiction here. Elin Berlin is the face behind Swedish blog Youth Knows No Pain. In it, for the most part, she seems to maintain a sunny and bright disposition. But things aren’t always as they seem; by night she records under the moniker Eternal Death, a meditative project with Johan Angergård (Acid House Kings, Club 8, The Legends).Read More »Best Album of 2015 So Far: Eternal Death’s New Self-Titled LP
My love of Haydenâ€™s music goes way back. Back, in fact, twenty years to his sophomore release, Everything I Long For. Iâ€™ve always been a fan of his mopey Canadian folk rock.

Let’s take a trip back in time. The year is 2006, and FensePost is only a few months old. I stumble upon a newly relocated indiepop artist called BOAT. The band moved from Chicago to Seattle and landed a spot on the Magic Marker Records roster for their debut LP Songs That You Might Not Like. Around the same time, via the twee-favorite Matinee Records imprint, I discovered Seattle indiepop band Math & Physics Club. Read More »Unlikely Friends Release Solid Gold Cowboy on Jigsaw Records
A few weeks back, I grabbed “24” off a recent double single by Moonbabies for airplay on my radio show.

Holy !*&%( It’s the Holidays Already! That means it’s been around three months since I last posted on FensePost. Not good. Very bad. Coal for me this holiday. But the good news is that Nicholas Krgovich (of No Kids, backer of Mount Eerie, K-Recs favorite, etc.) has put together a free Christmas EP! Tune in here… Read More »New X-Mas Tunes by Nicholas Krgovich of No Kids & P:ano!
