Foxy Digitalis Favorites 2022: Regional Attraction

Portland, Oregon’s Regional Attraction has been pretty quiet in 2022, but the one album they released, David Lackner’s Waiting For Sunday, is fantastic. Label boss Andrew Heuback is a longtime friend and collaborator who has turned me on to so much good music through the years, I had to hear where his head has been throughout 2022. Some words from Heuback about this mix: This … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Favorites 2022: Regional Attraction

Foxy Digitalis 2022 Favorites: Andrew Oda

As part of Foxy Digitalis’s 2022 look back, I asked a handful of artists, labels, and friends to put together mixes of some of their favorites from the year, and I’ll share them throughout December and January. Andrew Oda was a late 2022 revelation for me. His album, Back to the Body, is a dense, hypnotizing masterpiece (I just wrote about it last week, so I won’t … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis 2022 Favorites: Andrew Oda

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #61: Corntuth

I wrote about Corntuth’s lovely new album, Letters to My Robot Son, in last week’s Capsule Garden, and I highly recommend giving it a listen. His mix for Foxy Digitalis collects music that inspired the album; with the added context, new layers and realizations about it come into view. Here’s what Corntuth has to say about the mix: This is a mix of some of the material … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #61: Corntuth

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #60: Molten Plains

Molten Plains Fest, curated by Sarah Ruth Alexander and Ernesto Montiel, will take place next week, December 9th and 10th, in Denton, Texas. It’s an incredible two-day event of adventurous sounds and collective spirit. In celebration of this event, I asked Ernesto if he’d put together a mix of festival performers, and across these 18 tracks, it’s easy to see what a special event this will … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #60: Molten Plains

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #59: K7 Municipal

Brazil’s Municipal K7 label has been a new favorite in 2022. The label, in operation since 2020, only came across my radar this summer due to Fantasma do Cerrado’s incredible Mapeamento de Terras a Noroeste de S​ã​o Paulo de Piratininga. Further explorations revealed a label with a unique, discernible approach that hasn’t missed. I reached out to Rafael Stan Molina, who co-runs the label with Mario … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #59: K7 Municipal

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #58: Elijah McLaughlin

As fall has finally arrived here in Tulsa (at least for a week or so), the gilded resonance of Elijah McLaughlin Ensemble’s latest album has hit a little deeper. There’s something about these golden-hued songs and delicate arrangements that lend themselves to the current season in a special way. With that, I was thrilled when Elijah shared this mix of music that he was listening … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #58: Elijah McLaughlin

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #56: Julia Sabra & Fadi Tabbal

I don’t have much to add here that Julia and Fadi don’t say better below. Still, this mix is an eye-opening trip of familiar and unfamiliar names stitched together memorably. Aptly titled Requiem for a City: Post-apocalyptic Music from Beirut, it’s a fantastic insight into the extraordinary scene in Beirut. I’ll also add that their album, Snakeskin, is out now and is one of my favorite records … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #56: Julia Sabra & Fadi Tabbal

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #55: Turn on the Sunlight

I can’t remember how I first came across Turn On The Sunlight, but it immediately grabbed me. Multi-instrumentalist Jesse Peterson’s project continually leaves me stranded high above the clouds, basking in his music’s bright, open spaces. Turn On The Sunlight’s newest is Peterson’s most ambitious: a double LP on Moon Glyph entitled You Belong, out this Friday, October 14. It’s special. Pick up a copy HERE. In the … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #55: Turn on the Sunlight

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #54: Eryk Salvaggio

Eryk Salvaggio’s upcoming album, Worlding: Sympoietic Mycology, is a trip. Described as a collaboration between human, synthesizer, and mushroom, Worlding sings in its own language. From pop-infused expressions to alien glitchworlds, it’s an album filled with new, interesting ideas and evolving sounds. Salvaggio has released some excellent music in recent years, but Worlding stands apart. The album will be released on October 21 via No Type on cassette and digital formats. Pre-order a … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #54: Eryk Salvaggio
