Foxy Digitalis Mix #26: Nick Zanca

Nick Zanca’s Cacerolazo continues to get near-daily rotations here, new sounds and ideas revealing themselves each time. It’s such an immersive listening experience for me and is an album that might seem challenging at first, but is so listenable once it sets in.  Nick put together this stellar mix-ish. In his own words: “It’s less of a proper mix, and more of a curated selection of favorite … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #26: Nick Zanca

Foxy Digitalis Mix #25: Jamie Stewart

For Jamie Stewart’s HEXA mixtape, Exhibition Copy, he digs deep. Like the new HEXA album, his collaboration with Lawrence English, there’s a surprising thread that runs through the whole of this mix. Of course, the HEXA album, Material Interstices, is a heady subterranean drifter and while there’s some deep bass and snarling electronics peppered throughout Exhibition Copy, it’s the care and detail in how the … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #25: Jamie Stewart

Foxy Digitalis Mix #24: Headboggle

There’s something about Derek Gedalecia’s Headboggle project that always keeps me guessing and slightly confused. It’s one of the many reasons I am consistently smitten with his work. Beyond the interesting sonic pathways he explores, there’s a certain humor to his tunes that engages in ways that a lot of similar music fails to do. Don’t get me wrong, Gedalecia’s work is heady and thought-provoking, … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #24: Headboggle

Foxy Digitalis Mix #23: Home Learning

Home Learning is the duo of Tom Schmidlin (of pagination) and Edmund Osterman (of Screener). Their latest album, wireframed, is a drifting slab of permeable melancholy housed in an ultraviolet freefall. It’s music that glows under the right light, haunting in its graceful movements and severed from the planes of time. Schmidlin and Osterman assembled this excellent mix for the long nights ahead. wireframed is OUT … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #23: Home Learning

Foxy Digitalis Mix Series #22: Requiem & Simon McCorry

Collaborative mix from a collaborative project! Requiem (Doug Kallmeyer and Tristan Welch) have joined forces again with cellist Simon McCorry for a beautiful new album, Joy; Division, on Woodford Halse. Their music is haunting with Requiem’s emotive drone works buoyed by McCrory’s skillful cello magic. Joy; Division cradles the darkness. Pre-order the album, which releases on October 16, and stream their excellent mix below. Tracklist: … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Series #22: Requiem & Simon McCorry

Foxy Digitalis Mix Series #21: Summer in Space (TUSK)

Our friends at TUSK return with another mix, this time a collection of favorites for drifting off into the nether expanses of the cosmos in the dying days of summer (hey it’s still 95 degrees here as I write this). As ever, it’s a brilliant mix that moves all over the place. With Bandcamp Friday on the horizon this week, Tusk’s Bandcamp page is a … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Series #21: Summer in Space (TUSK)

Foxy Digitalis Mix #20: A.F. Jones

When Alan Jones isn’t busy making one of the year’s best music documentaries (seriously, if you haven’t seen the Keith Rowe doc, fix that this weekend), he is often making excellent music. I was impressed by his collaboration with Gabi Losoncy from earlier this year and last year’s A Jurist For Nothing is an album that continues surprising me. It’s no surprise, then, that this … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #20: A.F. Jones

Foxy Digitalis Mix #19: TUSK Editions

TUSK Festival is a UK mainstay, offering some of the most unique programming around and generally bending minds and opening new avenues with their events. I feel a real kinship with TUSK’s mission to bring supposedly difficult music to more mainstream situations and audiences. Obviously the pandemic has thrown a wrench in their operations, but they continue finding new ways to connect. Last year TUSK … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #19: TUSK Editions

Foxy Digitalis Mix #18: Sarah Hennies

Sarah Hennies needs no introduction (though if you don’t have her incredible 2xLP on Astral Spirits from last year, what are you doing?). There’s a lot I could say about Sarah and what her influence and work has meant to me over the years (I talked a bit about this on the Gold Leaf Branches episode of The Electric Rubicon, but the shorter version is … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #18: Sarah Hennies

Foxy Digitalis Mix #17: Norm Chambers

For the past decade plus, few artists’ music has been as regular a part of my listening habits as Norm Chambers. During the Digitalis days, he and I did more projects together than just about anyone and I still hold so many of those Panabrite records in great esteem. Norm continues putting out memorable, engaging work, including his latest that takes a more sampler-based approach … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #17: Norm Chambers
