Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #19: Buh Records

I feel pretty late to the game on Peru’s Buh Records, but regardless of how long it took me to learn about this incredible label, there is so much good stuff to dig through. Started in 2004 by Luis Alvarado, Buh has released a diverse cache of music from artists all over the world. The label’s recent compilation of experimental music from Peru is an excellent place … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #19: Buh Records

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #18: Kate Carr

Whether it’s her own solo work or the music released through her label Flaming Pines, Kate Carr always has my attention. With the lovely fake creek, it all comes together in a enchanting, aqueous package. It’s an excellent example of what makes Carr’s work so interesting and engaging in that there’s some familiarity with the individual sounds, but she has a singular, inventive way of … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #18: Kate Carr

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #17: Heavy Cloud

Heavy Cloud stays busy. His small-run releases are always inviting as he shifts through different soundscapes and palettes, never moving in any real linear direction. That last part is one of the things I like most about Heavy Cloud’s recent run of releases. There’s always something new to be heard; new zones to explore and get lost within. His latest, Season Shift, explores his personal relationship … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #17: Heavy Cloud

Inside No. 9, Episode #3: Selected Audio Tapes 2011-2022

Episode #3: Selected Audio Tapes 2011-2022 I returned to my shelves of cassettes for this mix after a determination to pick up more tapes this year after a brief hiatus, and because I’m running out of room for vinyl in my apartment. This mix features several old favourites of mine, including Fennesz and Klara Lewis, but it also features artists new to me such as … Continue reading Inside No. 9, Episode #3: Selected Audio Tapes 2011-2022

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #16: Kendraplex

Considering how much I love Kendraplex’s music, I shouldn’t be surprised at how much this mix got to me, but here we are. It’s not just the selection of great tunes (many of which I was previously unfamiliar with), but she has such a good ear and unique perspective that the way she put this together is just as important. I hope you will do … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #16: Kendraplex

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #15: Ned Milligan

I remember hearing Ned Milligan’s 2017 album, Nature Always Needs Improving, for the first time and being immediately taken in by its gentle resonance and luminous tonal spaces. Plenty of artists do great work with field recordings and making music outdoors, but there’s a certain intimacy to Milligan’s work that deeply connects with me. His use of chimes continually surprises me, but it’s a perfect medium … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #15: Ned Milligan

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #14: Beachers

There’s an element of the unexpected to Daryl Worthington’s Beachers project. When I think about the three releases I’ve heard, the main connective tissue is the underlying curiosity. Worthington is an explorer. He never seems settled, but there’s a certain comfort in the fluidity of his sound. As a listener, it keeps me guessing and excited about where the road will take the project next. … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #14: Beachers

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #13: Influx & SYNE

When Past Inside the Present decided to venture into the realm of ambient techno, it makes sense that the first offering from this new series is from two label stalwarts. SYNE is Dennis Huddleston, best known for his work as 36 and Influx is James Bernard (side note: check out the fantastic new awakened souls (his duo with marine eyes) album that’s just out). On PULSE 01, their … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #13: Influx & SYNE

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #12: Marjorie

I’m a big fan of Marjorie’s Doesn’t Exist and keep finding new aspects to it that keep me coming back for repeated listens. The duo of Melodie Stancato and Zachary Taube bring an array of different ideas to the table but mix them in ways that spur something new. When I asked them to make a mix, I wasn’t sure what to expect but the perfectly-named Songs We … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #12: Marjorie

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #11: Regional Attraction

I admit to being a little biased when it comes to the excellent Portland label, Regional Attraction, but that’s okay. Run by my longtime friend, Andrew Heuback, there’s a curatorial consistency to the label that hits so many of my weaknesses. Heuback has always had great taste and his previous label, Overland Shark, was a jumping off point. Regional Attraction feels like the slightly-older, cooler … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #11: Regional Attraction
