Jesse Dee [Feature Band]

Jesse Dee

Written by Fense

“Alright” opens with blaring trumpets and Jesse Dee’s soulful vocals. This continues for a full minute before opening up into something a bit wider—wider in that the instrumentation comes full circle with organs, back-up singers and a slew of classic influences that are readily apparent… Read More »Jesse Dee [Feature Band]

The Legends [Feature Band]

The Legends by Henrik MÃ¥rtensson

One of my earliest forays into Swedish pop, which has come to dominate my musical obsession over the past few years, was my introduction to The Legends. The band consists of Johan Angergård, a key mastermind behind Acid House Kings and Club 8.

Darker My Love [Feature Band]

Darker My Love

I was initially confounded by Darker My Love (MySpace).

Then there’s a hefty element of psychedelic rock, and massive traces of shoegaze. Read More »Darker My Love [Feature Band]

Murmansk [Feature Band]

Murmansk by Terhi Ylimainen

Written by Fense

“Chinese Locks”, the debut title-track by Murmansk (MySpace) opens with drone and feedback-filled guitars that last a full two minutes before any sort of rhythmic beat comes in. In a way, it sets the stage for what’s to come—Murmansk’s experimental style, female fronted rock. It’s a powerful and bold introductory statement that, in all actuality, works quite well.

Balún [Feature Band]

Today I present three features on bands introduced to me by a single compilation. The background: Last year, a little compilation pop label from Brazil sent me a lovely little collection of tunes, released as Porque Este Oceano Es El Tuyo, Es El Ma­o. Well, that label has done it again. Pero Ese Olor En El Cuarto Del Piano Fue El Primer Perfume Que Necesita En Su Vida is a pretty long name for an album, but it fits the concept.
