Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #4: Nate Scheible

One of my favorite things about asking people to make mixes for Foxy Digitalis is getting hit with the unexpected. I’ve been a big admirer of Nate Scheible since I first heard him play on those early collaborations with Mark McGuire. Almost five years ago he released the incredible Fairfax and with it getting a well-deserved and much-needed reissue via Warm Winters Ltd, it presented … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #4: Nate Scheible

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #3: Armbruster

As Armbruster readies his fantastic new album, Masses, on Dear Life Records, he brings the same warm spirit to this fantastic Foxy Digitalis mix. Titled “You Walked In On The Ritual,” Armbruster takes an eclectic offering of songs and personal recordings and sculpts them into an engaging exploration. In his own words, “The mix makes some mighty genre leaps, but it’s brought together by a … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #3: Armbruster

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

I’ve been wanting to make some kind of mix for the site for a while after having such a blast collaborating on the Halloween and Xmas mixes, so starting the year off with some Charlatan action on Foxy Digitalis feels right. After numerous stops and starts, I finally settled on a mix of one instrument/solo performance (mostly) pieces. There’s a little wiggle room, of course … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #1: Field Patterns

Field Patterns has left an indelible imprint on me with his soft, flowing soundscapes that evoke feelings of pensive warmth. I often lose myself in his sonic worlds as soon as I hit play. Last year’s self-titled album on Aural Canyon was a psychedelic trip through spiraling landscapes while his newest, Heavy Palms, is a floating tropical dream where whimsy and contemplation melt together in … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #1: Field Patterns

Foxy Digitalis Mix #44: Mephisto Halabi

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Mephisto Halabi’s The Arabic Room continues to keep me fried and overjoyed. It’s one of my favorite albums of the year and rewards listeners who dig into its every crevice. I can’t get enough. When I asked Julius Masri (the brains behind all of it) to splice together a mix of tunes that have inspired and influenced … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #44: Mephisto Halabi

Foxy Digitalis Mix #43: Scoromide

When I reviewed the excellent Central Isteric PASS/PORT album (on czaszka (rec.)) earlier this year, I mentioned that I didn’t have much of a grasp on Romanian experimental music. After publishing the review, Gili Mocanu (the brains behind Central Isteric) and I struck up a conversation on Twitter about what’s going on in his home country. He gave a few pointers and I started digging. Then, a … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #43: Scoromide

Foxy Digitalis Mix #42: ragenap

Years ago, while lying in bed on our sides facing each other, Eden and I started doing this thing where we’d place our palms on the side of each other’s heads and press down. It was strangely relaxing so we’ve kept doing it. We call it macropressure and I keep thinking someone should open a massage parlor that also offers macropressure. It’s a goldmine! Maybe … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #42: ragenap

Foxy Digitalis Mix #41: An Altar Eagle Xmas (Pt. 2)

We listen to a pretty decent amount of Christmas music here at Foxy Digitalis HQ throughout December each year, always trying to find random, weird, and wonderful gems we haven’t heard before. In 2012, Eden and I made an Altar Eagle Xmas mix that, quite frankly, ruled. I still get asked about it a few times each holiday season and while I don’t have that … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #41: An Altar Eagle Xmas (Pt. 2)

Foxy Digitalis Mix #40: NONEXISTENT

NONEXISTENT is a new collaborative effort from Astrud Steehouder, Alex Tucker, and Luke J Murray and their self-titled debut is out now via Downwards Records. It’s an album with a serrated edge, cutting through all the ephemera of a present infected by a not-too-distant past. Downwards label head, Regis, says, “They have undeniably made a great electronic record that’s rooted in the soil of these … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #40: NONEXISTENT
