Arliss Parker: Handsome Like A Lion [Album Review]

Arliss Parker

Written by Fense

Arliss Parker (aka Chris Parker) is slated to release his debut EP, Handsome Like A Lion, on November 25 via DAG! Records and, not to brag, I have the beautiful, artistically designed yellow-and-white case in my hands. Well, not technically in my hands — it’s sitting next to my MacBook as I type this review. Displayed on the yellow background is a simple white image of what looks like a girl, face scratched away. Printed vertically are the artist and album names in clean orange letters.

The Organ

The Organ: Thieves [Album Review]

Very few groups can consider themselves a true girl group, especially if their numbers are greater than three, let alone four. But The Organ boasts five. After a very well-received debut release in Grab That Gun, the ladies of The Organ sadly parted ways. Luck for us, they decided to patch things up long enough to finish recording their followup EP, Thieves — or else, at least, treat us with a posthumous little gift.

The Theater Fire [Feature Band]

The Theater Fire

Written by Fense

I get a lot of email. I also get a lot of promo albums. The combination of the two mean that FensePost can sometimes be more a second job than a hobby. As much as I hate to say it, sometimes I get a lot of crap for writing overwhelmingly positive reviews and features. But the way I see it, why do I want to promote something I think is bad? In other words, I get a lot of promo crap as well. And at other times, there’s simply too much to get through. Like now, for example. My promo piles have outgrown the size of the promo rack. They now sit gathering dust on top of the rack as well as within. Read More »The Theater Fire [Feature Band]

Canadian Invasion: Three Cheers For The Invisible Hand [Video]

Canadian Invasion

Written by Fense

My god man! Did someone declare 2008 the year of the lovable pop gem yet? If not, I may just have to do it because this year has seen so many great bands release so many great tunes, and the latest to succumb to the awesome curse is Canadian Invasion with their song “Three Cheers For The Invisible Hand”. It joins the ranks of Pomegranates, Fredrik, Grand Archives, The New Year and many, many more than I’m sure I’ll kick myself later for forgeting — all these bands have dished out great pop songs this year.

Dancer Vs. Politician: A City Half-Lost [Album Review]

Dancer Vs. Politician

When I first heard the voice of Sanni Baumgaertner at the beginning of “Mach Dich Los.” I did a double-take. I had to check and verify that Dancer Vs. Politician wasn’t the solo project of Acid House Kings female counterpart Julia Lannerheim. It, of course, is not. Baumgaertner is a native of Germany, a country with plenty of untapped pop resources.

Michael Zapruder: Ads For Feelings [Video]

Michael Zapruder

Written by Fense

I’m a bit sad. Yesterday, the 6th of November, was my one month anniversary at my new job. I really enjoy my work and the people I work with, but it means I must rent a room in the small town of Edison (at a really great house with a really great roommate) and I am only able to be in Seattle Friday evening through Sunday early afternoon, when I can return to my condo in Ballard, where I live on weekends (and where my girlfriend lives all week). It’s sad because it means I miss out on all the great shows that happen in Seattle — case in point, Michael Zapruder (MySpace), slated to play Sunset Tavern this Sunday.
