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

Foxy Digitalis Mix #39: David Watson

David Watson’s upcoming collaboration with Matthew Welch, Woven, is an ecstatic vision of bagpipe reverie. It’s music that will simultaneously lift spirits and blow down the walls. For decades, Watson has been an enigmatic piper pushing the limits of his instrument and composing pieces that expand listeners’ ideas of what bagpipe music is and can be. Woven is no different.  When Room 40 boss Lawrence English mentioned that … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #39: David Watson

Foxy Digitalis Mix #38: Channelers

On Channelers newest album, Another Entrance, Sean Conrad opens this beautiful, shimmering world with two resonating piano notes. He lets them hang for a few extra moments before repeating them and sailing off toward the aqueous horizon. It sets the intentions of the entire album, welcoming listeners to drift with him in his search for his own kind of devotional music. Another Entrance is a little bit of … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #38: Channelers

Foxy Digitalis Mix #37: Anthony Sahyoun

Hot on the heels of Anthony Sahyoun’s incredible new album, Proof By Infinite Descent, comes this beguiling mix of Lebanese, Syrian, Egyptian, and Palestinian music. The Beirut artist weaves countless inspirations and sources into his record. Listening to this 67-minute mix, certain threads emerge and we can hear how he combined some of these elements into new ideas and sounds throughout Proof By Infinite Descent. This is … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #37: Anthony Sahyoun

Foxy Digitalis Mix #36: Bandcloud

When I started releasing music and thinking about getting Foxy Digitalis going again, Aidan Hanratty was one of the first people to reach out. He interviewed me for his Bandcloud newsletter last year and we’ve stayed in semi-regular contact since. Bandcloud is a weekly treasure trove of interesting music that’s often overlooked in other spaces so it’s no surprise that it appeals to me so … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #36: Bandcloud

Foxy Digitalis Mix #35: The Triforce Pt. 2 (Milieu)

Building off yesterday’s in-depth conversation with Brian Grainger aka Milieu aka Coppice Halifax aka… I put together this selection of his Zelda-themed/inspired works. Most of these pieces come from Improvisations For Hylian Horn & Pipe Organ and Improvisations For Hylian Piano & Woodwinds albums, but there are a few bits from his two Zelda-inspired splits with Millipede as well. Head on over to his Bandcamp page to dig in further. Tracklist:1. … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #35: The Triforce Pt. 2 (Milieu)

Foxy Digitalis Radio #3: Nasturtium

For the third episode of Foxy Digitalis Radio on Radio Coyote, I spoke with Erin Dawson and Geneva Skeen aka Nasturtium. I adore their debut album, Please Us, which came out earlier this year on Room 40 so this seemed like a perfect opportunity to chat with them. We talked about a lot of different things including the first-ever, weirdo drone meetcute,” collaborating by file swapping even though they … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Radio #3: Nasturtium

Foxy Digitalis Mix #34: SiP

From now on I’m going to call Jimmy Lacy the velvet assassin because who wouldn’t want that as a nickname? All kidding aside, his recent collaboration as SiP with Prezzano (out now on Moon Glyph) is a gem that’s spirited the transition from summer to fall quite nicely. Here’s Lacy’s description of this damn fine mix: My thinking behind this collection was to capture the … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #34: SiP

Foxy Digitalis Mix #33: Roadhouse

Roadhouse keeps grabbing my attention, first as part of the stellar Equipment Pointed Ankh and now with two new solo records, Aladdin Sales and Supernatural XS, both out now on Sophomore Lounge. Roadhouse gets into weird grooves and sprawls all over the map, finding wild rides from coast to coast all while firmly planted in Kentucky. He goes from one trial to the next, dropping genres like wine bottles from … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #33: Roadhouse
