Fense’s Radio Show: December 2, 2011

BMW 2002

As the days and nights get colder, and we enter full-fledged winter, it becomes more and more difficult to justify taking the BMW out. In the cold, it’s almost better to just walk. But I braved the chill and barely-working defrost on December 2, taking the car out for one last night show before the new year.

25 Great Bands, 30 Great Music Videos


Creating a music video, in my opinion, should be about creating art. There are so many intricate elements that should go into a video that are so often left forgotten or, at least, unattended.

El Perro Del Mar: Change Of Heart [Video]

El Perro Del Mar

El Perro Del Mar‘s video for “Change Of Heart” is an easy contender for video of the year, and it takes only a few seconds to come to that conclusion.

But, they often seemed almost too minimal. Well El Perro Del Mar is back with a new LP, Love Is Not Pop, and the first single off it is “Change Of Heart”, a song that defies Assbring’s minimal days and orchestrated days combined for something a bit more electric.

The Best Albums of 2008

Best of 2008: Fense’s Top 33 & 1/3 Albums of the Year

The year is over. We have a new president about to take office, a failing economy, and out of control weather. The good news is that last year saw some amazing albums hit and, thanks to the rampant oppression of hard times, next year should prove just as fruitful music-wise. After all, difficult times, depression, etc. can often breed above average achievements in the arts… right?

So here it is, my top 33 and 1/3 albums of the year and the last post of 2008. The 33 is for the top 33 albums (with a few EPs included) of the year, while the 1/3 is an honorable mention 7″ single. We’ll begin with the latter…
