Foxy Digitalis Mix #6: Jeffrey Silverstein

Our man from the Northwest returns with this killer set of deep-cut psych and cosmic country rippers to get us all in the mood for the heat-soaked weekend to come. Let’s get the groove going, take a heavy rip, and dance all the way into the deepest reaches of the night. While you’re here, head over to Jeffrey’s bandcamp and throw him some support (his … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #6: Jeffrey Silverstein

Foxy Digitalis Mix #5: The Triforce

If there’s one thing Foxy Digitalis has sorely been lacking since the restart, it’s Legend of Zelda content. So I’m rectifying that with nearly two hours of original songs from all the Zelda games, mixed-up, manipulated, and mashed together. I don’t have a tracklist (though if you email me, I can probably help out) – you just have to get into the weeds, hop on … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #5: The Triforce

Foxy Digitalis Mix #4: Cult Love

Over the past few years, an underground wave of noise and experimental sound has risen up in Tulsa, and a lot of it has been spearheaded by Cult Love. Cult Love is Natty Gray Watson, George Christ Holtzscher, and Lauran Rose Drummond, an art and music collective based in Tulsa. The trio have been putting on shows, slinging cassettes, merch, and so much more for … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #4: Cult Love

Foxy Digitalis Mix #3: Ambulance vs. Ambulance

On this mix, we get gonzo’d by Bokeh‘s resident plunderphonic crew, Ambulance vs. Ambulance mashing together a mix of slowed down records, harmonica, shitty vocals, and more. Get deep into these cracks with this mix, called Accidental Meeting, and in the meantime also grab a copy of Ambulance vs. Ambulance’s killer album, Industrial Country. And as always, Bokeh forever. If you like what Foxy Digitalis … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #3: Ambulance vs. Ambulance

Foxy Digitalis Mix #2: Nick Storring

Nick Storring has released fantastic albums on labels like Orange Milk, Notice, and Scissor Tail among others. Last year’s full-length, My Magic Dreams Have Lost Their Spell, is transportive, taking listeners on an emotional sonic ride through imaginary landscapes and sprawling aural vistas. It’s incredible. Next week, on July 16th, he will release his latest, Newfoundout, on the excellent mappa label. 1. Atrium Musicae de Madrid … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #2: Nick Storring

The Electric Rubicon #3: Time-Lag Records

Time-Lag Records is one of the best labels of all-time for my money. If you have any interest in free, psychedelic music you’ve likely crossed paths with something the label put out at some point or another. The likes of Six Organs of Admittance, Charalambides, and MV & EE all had early releases on Time-Lag and some of those records remain among their best work … Continue reading The Electric Rubicon #3: Time-Lag Records

Foxy Digitalis Mix #1: Ted Byrnes

I’m excited to present this killer mix from percussionist, Ted Byrnes. I’ve long-admired Ted’s work and when I decided to bring Foxy Digitalis back, he was an artist I hoped to write about. His forthcoming album, Moving My Body Through Space, which comes out July 9th via Arkeen (pre-order HERE), is a challenging set of sonic explorations rooted in Ted’s trademark style. Ted offers this … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #1: Ted Byrnes

Jewel Garden Radio, Episode #2

New episode with some great music from the last few months, some of which I’ve written about here and others that I haven’t had the time or mental space to cover in depth. Also a couple special snippets here – the premiere of Tikkun Olam, a new project from Ilyse Krivel and Colin Fisher coming next month on The Jewel Garden. Plus, a song from the unreleased duo of James Blackshaw and myself, Sea Turtle Legions. It’s all worth checking out, though, and hopefully something will appeal to your ears. Thanks for listening. Continue reading Jewel Garden Radio, Episode #2

The Electric Rubicon #2: Gold Leaf Branches

I did not expect to be posting a second episode of The Electric Rubicon so quickly, but sometimes serendipitous things happen. On Saturday I was doing some research/digging for another future episode and remembered the three Elephant Micah CDRs that Time-Lag released back the mid-2000s. That, in turn, reminded me of the song he gave me for Gold Leaf Branches, a massive 3CD compilation I released on Digitalis in 2005. Continue reading The Electric Rubicon #2: Gold Leaf Branches

The Electric Rubicon #1: Abdul Wadud

The Electric Rubicon is a project I’ve been thinking about for a while now, but it was only in the last few months that I got a clearer picture of how I wanted to pull it together. Basically this is going to be a regular (my goal is once-per-month!) show where each episode is focused on a single band, artist, or label and I spend some time digging into their history and importance and, more generally, what it is that makes them special. The main thing, though, is an excuse to pull out some killer tunes that most people have never heard, or at least haven’t heard in a while. Continue reading The Electric Rubicon #1: Abdul Wadud
