Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #22: Caleb Dailey

When I first heard Caleb Dailey’s incredible debut, Warm Evenings, Pale Mornings: Beside You Then, I was immediately hooked. I still can’t get over the idea of making a debut album of country covers, especially from someone who is still digging into all the various channels of country music. It’s a real moment of magic this year. So when I talked to Caleb about doing … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #22: Caleb Dailey

Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 1) 2016-2022

Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 1) 2016-2022 I have been a fan of the musical works of Oren Ambarchi for a long time. I discovered his work through releases on Touch Records and his collaborations with both Sunn O))) and Jim O’Rourke. I got heavily into his Black Truffle label about 5 years ago and I’ve amassed quite a collection over the years. It’s … Continue reading Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 1) 2016-2022

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #21: c o m t e

There is such a lovely, calm spirit flowing through c o m t e’s recent album, Cipher, and he carries that same feeling into this fantastic mix. I’ve listened to it early in the morning as I was starting my day, half awake and it helped sent good intentions for the day, but it’s also been an excellent companion in the garden with my hands buried … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #21: c o m t e

The Electric Rubicon #4: Hiroyuki Usui

In this episode, the podcast shifts to a new, more concise format as I explore the history and music of Hiroyuki Usui. Usui was an early member of Fushitsusha (with Keiji Haino), Ghost, Marble Sheep, and others. Usui probably isn’t a household name for most listeners, but you can be sure he’s been a pivotal undercurrent in the Japanese experimental underground for almost 50 years. Hiroyuki … Continue reading The Electric Rubicon #4: Hiroyuki Usui

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #20: Euglossine

I made it pretty clear last week how much I love Tristan Whitehill’s Euglossine project, but when he sent over this mix it managed to heighten my connection and appreciation for him even more. When I think about all the elements of what makes Euglossine click with me so well, it’s all represented here on this Mix For the Warmth of Yellow Lamps.  A special mention, too, for … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #20: Euglossine

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
