Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #35: Carlos Ferreira

I love when I ask an artist to make a mix for the site, and the end result is something that manages to embody the underlying spirit of their own work. Brazilian composer Carlos Ferreira’s discography is vast. His music is pinned to the surface with subtle force while the ends drift skyward like loose threads trying to detach themselves and float away. There’s always … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #35: Carlos Ferreira

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #34: Meadow Argus

Meadow Argus, aka Tynan Krakoff, and I go way back. He used to run the excellent DNT label and distro and could always be counted on to find something new, weird, and fried. Honestly, it’s impossible to remember how many stellar projects he’s turned me onto over the years. When he got in touch again last year and introduced me to his excellent project, Meadow … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #34: Meadow Argus

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #32: Natalie Beridze (Part 1)

Natalie Beridze’s forthcoming album, Of Which One Knows, is immense, tactile. Built around her voice and intricate, emotive arrangements, she arrives in a place where time is distilled into small, soft fragments. Beridze pieces these sonic granules together into moving visages that spread across a barren landscape, bringing life back to the parched Earth. Her music is an invitation into a new dimension that moves in … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #32: Natalie Beridze (Part 1)

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #31: East Portal

East Portal’s debut album keeps finding its way into the back of my mind. John Atkinson and Patrick Taylor continually make surprising, unexpected choices as the record veers between discordant ledges and drifting valleys, combining the two disparate threads with elegance. Electronic silhouettes morph into the shadows of spiraling acoustic arrangements; pensive dreams become stagnant realities. It’s a beautiful record that continues to reveal itself through deeper … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #31: East Portal

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #30: Madeleine Cocolas

Madeleine Cocolas’s music often feels like it’s part of the fabric of the world it inhabits. On her forthcoming album for Room 40, Spectral, that world is shrinking. With that comes a sharper focus, and because of this, the recordings have a more intense, personal air to them. She revels in the stillness of these sounds.  On this mix, a similar spirit is found with these … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #30: Madeleine Cocolas

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #29: Kenneth James Gibson

Kenneth James Gibson’s new album, Groundskeeping, swims through solemn, turbulent seas before emerging weary and determined on a distant shore. It’s a record with emotive soundscapes interwoven with careful details that bring memories to the surface long-thought buried. Cascades of melancholic strings become a waterfall of languid remorse, buoyed by a few embers of hope. Groundskeeping is an incredible journey. With that, I am thrilled to present this … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #29: Kenneth James Gibson

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #28: Pinkcourtesyphone

I’m not sure much needs to be said here, but when Pinkcourtesyphone delivers a mix subtitled “gelatinous suspension of beliefs,” there’s only one way this is going. Hit play, fall down jagged chasms and get stuck in a vat of enchanted ooze where dance parties wobble enthusiastically and scientific discovery is etched in puddles of spectral recitations. Massive. His new album, All Intensive Purposes, will be … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #28: Pinkcourtesyphone

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #27: Jordan Christoff

I continue to be grateful that Jordan Christoff and I crossed paths in the last year. He is a fountain of special music, from his solo work and various collaborations to PJS and Anarchist Mountains, his duo with his brother Stefan. If I want to travel somewhere magical from the comfort of my living room, Christoff’s music always takes me there. Unsurprisingly, he brought that same craft … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #27: Jordan Christoff

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #26: Robert Takahashi Crouch

Robert Takahashi Crouch’s 2021 album, Jubilee, is special. He upped the ante earlier this year with a collection of reworks from a host stellar artists of album opener (and standout), “A Ritual.” The world of Jubilee continues to grow and evolve and for listeners, the expansive scope is a gift. Crouch adds an additional orbit with this Ritual Variations Mix Tape for Foxy Digitalis. Featuring pieces from the artists that … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #26: Robert Takahashi Crouch
