The Lovely Sparrows: Bury The Cynics [Album Review]

The Lovely Sparrows by Fense

Written by Fense

The Lovely Sparrows (MySpace) embark on an exciting journey with Bury The Cynics, and while they loose much of the excessive percussion I loved so much on their EP, they replace it with heightened production value and an array of additional instruments. Or, rather, the additional instruments are brought to the foreground and allowed to shine. Read More »The Lovely Sparrows: Bury The Cynics [Album Review]

Klas [Feature Band]

Klas

Klas is a super lovable lo-fi twee-ish folk-pop group out of Malmö, Sweden and they write beautiful songs like “I Was A Janitor” that include lyrics like I was a janitor / And life was bad / But when I got my paycheck / Life was good. Their debut album, titled To Sleep And Love, is out now in Europe on Evil Twin and in the states on Series II Records. Read More »Klas [Feature Band]

Woodhands [Feature Band]

Woodhands

Written by Fense

Woodhands are a Canadian duo that selectively mixes female vocals (think Au Revoir Simone), at least on select tunes like “Dancer”, with male ones so versatile they defy any one (or two, for that mater) classification. Their instrumentation boasts one on percussion and one on keytar. Heart Attack, their debut release on Paper Bag Records was released late last month. Read More »Woodhands [Feature Band]

Johnny Flynn: The Box [Video]

Johnny Flynn

Written by Fense

It seems like everyone is doing the animation thing these days and here is yet another, this time by British artist Johnny Flynn (MySpace). I received Flynn’s EP Hong Kong Cemetery in the mail recently and then saw his recent album, A Larum (out now on Lost Highway Records) at Sonic Boom. “The Box” is the first track off A Larum and the final track on the EP.

Portishead

Portishead: The Rip [Video]

I remember listening to Portishead in high school. “Glory Box” was a favorite, though at the time I did not know they mimicked the introduction from “Day Dream” by the late 60s, early 70s Belgian psych-pop group The Wallace Collection. Sampling from such artists was a common feature for Portishead and, while I am unaware of any potential sampling on their latest, Third, it’s likely present and accounted for. Today I’m looking at the music video for “The Rip” off that album.

In seeing The Shackeltons (MySpace) perform live, you are GUARANTEED one thing. (In that statement, GUARANTEED must be italicized and in all caps. That’s how sure one can be in making such a statement.) In seeing The Shackeltons perform, you will, no matter what the circumstance, be treated to one of the all-time greatest performances you will ever see. Period.

Thao Nguyen: Bumbershoot [Live, 08.30.2008]

As Thao Nguyen (MySpace) took the Rockstar Stage at Bumbershoot, I had déjà vu. You see, one year ago, I attended Bumbershoot and witnessed St. Vincent play solo in this very spot. As I lined her up in my camera sights, I flashed back to the present. Thao’s music is quite different from that of St. Vincent, yet both dabble lightly in folk-pop.
