Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 3, #21: Lula Asplund & Kyle Bates

Lula Asplund and Kyle Bates’s new album, The Matinee, is something of a marvel to me. It’s a long, winding journey that always feels close and vulnerable. There’s something hypnotic in the shifting soundscapes and the way Asplund and Bates help us navigate through the changing aural spaces. Perhaps most remarkable is that it was mostly recorded live, showing the duo’s connection and understanding of their unique sonic language. For this mix, they put together a selection of personal influences that fit the feeling of the project.

The Matinee is out now on Whited Sepulchre.
