Blonde Redhead Vague b/w Jet Stream Vinyl

Discogs Vinyl Haul: The Wailers, a Rare Blonde Redhead, & Shoegaze Deep Cuts

I spent a few days in the hospital earlier this month after some pretty intense abdominal pain. Turns out, my gallbladder has been causing me issues for years. Something I chalked up to merely bad indigestion actually could have killed me. A quick trip to the ER early one morning led to a two-day stay and surgery to have it removed. During the visit, I pulled the trigger on a vinyl order, and today I’m going to share what I got in this Discogs Vinyl Haul post.

Vinyl only night on KSVR

Vinyl Only Night on KSVR

As you may already know, but I’ll state it nonetheless for those who do not, I have a weekly radio show on KSVR Mount Vernon, KSVU Hamilton and KSJU Friday Harbor. You can tune in via the respective dial pinpoints if you live within those townships, or you can stream from We will be hosting our pledge drive in April, so I thought I’d kick things off by doing something no other station in Skagit or (to my knowledge) the surrounding areas does: a vinyl only night.

Fense’s Radio Show: October 5, 2012

With as much psychedelic pop and rock that I’ve been listening to lately, it only made sense to put together a full show featuring the sub-genres. Of course, I also threw in some beloved garage rock to keep things sane. For the first time in ages, I took the KSVR and KSVU airwaves and played several older tunes (older meaning 2011 and before), with bands like Wooden Shjips and The Mantles and Comets on Fire. New releases got their fair share of air play as well: recent songs from The Fresh & Onlys, Two Gallants, Sunglasses and METZ also made the cut. Check out the playlist below and sample the songs in blue.

Wooden Shjips: Wooden Shjips EP (Retrospective Album Review)

Wooden Shjips

Growing up in semi-rural Washington, specifically in the early nineties, I was always surrounded by a dumbfoundingly random array of neighbors. There were always a collection of traditional red-state, tractor-towin’, shit-kickin’ Republican families; an abundance of well educated, upper-class elitist families (they may have referred to themselves as familial unit, or whatever happened to be politically correct at the time), and a host of hard-to-peg inbetweeners. However, regardless of whatever neighborhood I found myself in, there was always a Camaro or Trans-am sportin’ bad ass. Read More »Wooden Shjips: Wooden Shjips EP (Retrospective Album Review)
