A few months back, I shared my top 20 albums turning 20 years old in 2023. I loved compiling that list, and figured it would be great to put one together for the albums turning 10 this year as well. In this post, I’m scouring my collection for albums released 10 years ago, and I’m pulling out the top 10 albums turning 10 in 2023 — or, in other words, the top 10 albums of 2013.Read More »Top 10 Albums Turning 10 in 2023
Beach Fossils is an indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York that formed in 2009 and is fronted by Dustin Payseur on vocals and guitar. Their sound blends a variety of genres and sub-genres including bedroom pop, indie pop, lo-fi, surf rock, and post punk.
Below, you’ll find a complete collection of album reviews, song reviews, features, music videos, lists, and more covered on FensePost that feature Beach Fossils.
Self-described bedroom pop purveyors Beach Fossils are back in 2023 with a new album called Bunny, and it is pretty damn good. But it’s also not what you might expect if you’re a long-time fan of the band. Today, I’m going to dig in, share what makes this album different, and show you my copy on baby blue marble vinyl.Read More »Beach Fossils | Bunny | Album Review
Originally released in 2017, Somersault was the full-length Beach Fossils released away from their original label, Captured Tracks. As such, the album is distinctively different from earlier releases by the band.Read More »Beach Fossils: Somersault (5th Anniversary Reissue on Tangerine Swirl Vinyl)
Dev Sherlock from Hype Machine asked me to DJ a brief set at their Bumbershoot tent. The prospect was a nerve-wracking one: I DJ weekly at KSVR, but broadcasting behind the curtain of radio is completely different than being in front of people. Still, I said yes and put together a playlist.Read More »Fense DJs at Bumbershoot: The Playlist
We’ve been doing up the floors in our house, stripping out the carpet, repainting the walls, painting the trim and doors, and laying down a rich brown woven bamboo (hence the lateness of this post and the general lack of posts this week). It’s a project that should add equity to our house and, one day, our pockets. I threw this playlist together Friday morning and set to work stripping carpet from the hallway while it played in the background. Read More »Fense’s Radio Show: March 2, 2012
After a week away, it was nice to be back in the studio. This week I played several folk-related tunes, a few garage-based ones, and a small handful of indie pop tracks. With the amount of indie-folk I’ve played of late, I’m thinking we’re in store for another dreamy mix and maybe even a garage rock mix in the near future.

It’s hard to imagine that just a few short months ago we were enjoying sunny summer days. 2011 was my best year yet, having achieved a few milestones: four and a half years running FensePost, riding my bike from Seattle to Portland and logging over 1,000 total on those two wheels between January and December, enjoying life with the love of my life (Andi), and a few defining mindset changes that put the two of us on a path to minimalism and frugality.Read More »FensePost Top 24: The Best EPs of 2011
This show began like any other, but without the transition difficulties. All was smooth. The music, on the other hand, was not. After a long, satisfying week, I was in need of some loud, abrasive rock music. But it wasn’t all like that. Due to the cold weather, I mixed in some beach pop, fuzzy dream pop and good old garage rock and pop.Read More »Fense’s Radio Show: November 18, 2011
The problem with so-called best-of lists, is that they are really just a collection of items organized based on experience and time, in that there will be plenty of albums heard the following year and beyond that will hold just as much weight as these we dub as “Best.” So, as of right now, at this particular time in the tail end of 2010 and the first moments of 2011, these albums are the best. There’s no question about it; it will change. My next list (which I’ve started, but may take a while to publish) is dubbed, paraphrase: the best albums I didn’t check out in 2011 for some reason or another.Read More »FensePost Top 33 and 1/3: The Best Albums of 2010
