The Radio Dept: Freddie And The Trojan Horse [Album Review]

The Radio Dept.

Written by Fense

With this new EP, dubbed after the opening track “Freddie And The Trojan Horse”, The Radio Dept. find themselves morphing into an even darker beast than was once thought possible. In the title track, this is emphasized through electro-new-wave-y melancholy vocals and percussive beats, as well as the dark sound that encompasses the keys.

Burn To Shine 5: Seattle, WA [Film Review]

Tiny Vipers from Burn To Shine 5

Burn To Shine has an interesting manifesto. The people who put these films together gather local bands for one day of recording in a building that is going to be destroyed. For Seattle, recorded January 27, 2007, they chose an ancient house and fourteen of Seattle’s greatest bands, including power names like Ben Gibbard, Eddie Vedder and Minus The Bear.

Pomegranates: Whom/Who [Video]


Written by Fense

I often say that Sweden puts out the best indie pop music in the world, but when it comes to the U.S. of A, Ohio reigns supreme. Pomegranates hail from Cincinnati and are one of my favorite new bands of 2008. Their LP Everything Is Alive has remained at the top of my weekly playlist for some time now and, with each additional listen, I come to love the music even more.

The Sweetheart Parade: Sings Like A Priest [Album Review]

The Sweetheart Parade

Written by Fense

Sings Like A Priest, the latest from The Sweetheart Parade (MySpace), again sets the stage for a Jason Molina (Songs: Ohio, The Magnolia Electric Co.) reference. Simply put, Joshua Britton’s (or JB) voice sounds mighty like that of Molina; they’re entrenched in a deep emotive folk minimalism. It’s not surprising, however, that JB’s voice has a bit more power — the difference is definitely in volume. Read More »The Sweetheart Parade: Sings Like A Priest [Album Review]

Past Lives: Strange Symmetry [Album Review]

Past Lives by Rustee Pace

Written by Fense

The wake of The Blood Brothers demise has actually led to several viable new projects from former members. This list includes Jaguar Love, who released their first LP on Matador earlier this year, and Past Lives (MySpace). Strange Symmetry is the debut EP by the latter, currently out in digital form and slated for physical format release in the next month or so. Read More »Past Lives: Strange Symmetry [Album Review]

Teith: Oak City [Album Review]


Written by Fense

I can wholeheartedly understand the meaning behind Oak City opener “Coffee Is A Cruel Mistress”. Like cigarettes, one can easily become a coffee addict. Unlike cigarettes, I’m hooked on coffee. My other addictions (you could call them shortcomings, but I don’t) include obsessive compulsive alphabetization, abundant record purchasing, and food. Read More »Teith: Oak City [Album Review]
