The Capsule Garden Vol 1.34: September 23, 2022

It’s been a busy, exhausting week here at FDHQ to the point that I’ve only managed to get through about half of the pile of music I was hoping to investigate. Granted, a lot of time was spent in the studio (again), so sound has been (as ever) the main focus around here, but, unfortunately for Foxy Digitalis, it’s mostly been my own music in … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.34: September 23, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.33: September 16, 2022

The hits keep coming here in September, the worst of the months. Can’t it just be fall already? Irarrázabal / Baldwin Grips (Tripticks Tapes) I can’t imagine something more in my wheelhouse than a double-double bass album with two of my favorite bassists, yet Grips still exceeds my expectations. Both Amanda Irarrázabal and Nat Baldwin are no strangers to Foxy Digitalis as they’ve put out countless diamonds in the … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.33: September 16, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.32: September 9, 2022

Kicking back into a higher gear after a slow(er) August, it’s been a busy week. So much good music has come across my plate that it’s been hard to narrow down what to write about (I wish I had a couple clones of myself!), but everything on this list is well worth your time. And a reminder that The Jewel Garden has a couple of … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.32: September 9, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.30: August 26, 2022

I don’t know if anyone has really noticed, but Foxy Digitalis has purposefully been moving at a slower pace in August. Not because it felt unsustainable where things were, but mainly so I could focus more time and energy on finishing some music projects (side note: it’d be a great time to subscribe to The Jewel Garden as fall is going to see a mountain of new … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.30: August 26, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.29: August 19, 2022

Special shout-out to Aidan Hanratty and Bandcloud today who hangs it up after over 400 weekly emails covering weird electronic music (and more!). Aidan was one of the most supportive people when Foxy Digitalis came back from the dead, and I will appreciate that forever. An amazing run, though – can’t be understated. Go give him some love and appreciation for the endless hours of … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.29: August 19, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.28: August 12, 2022

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon or subscribe to The Jewel Garden. Another week of abbreviated reviews, but all gems, all the time. A lot of self-released treats this week, which is always a beautiful thing. Forest Management Closing Credits (Self-Released) The hazy spaces between consciousness and sleep hum with sonorous effulgence. Loops become tangled webs spilling over with sonic … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.28: August 12, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.27: August 5, 2022

August is going to be a slow month here at FDHQ as I soak up the last bits of summer vacation with my daughter before school starts back and try to finish up a host of music projects that have been languishing the previous few months. (Though debuts from two new duos, Country Wifi and Building Buildings are close now!) Today, a new Ajilvsga, Choker, album … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.27: August 5, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.26 July 29, 2022

Another week of blazing temperatures has given way to torrential rain, flooding, and tropical humidity. Climate change is going well. In better news, Carl Antonowicz (Open Casket Sound System, the real star of Foxy Digitalis’s Illustrated Reviews, etc.) and I finally played some music together after talking about it for most of the year. More on that soon. In the meantime, here’s a heap of music worth … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.26 July 29, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.25 July 22, 2022

It’s been a thousand degrees all week, and it’s a miracle my brain is anything more than a puddle of spoiled mush. Today I will attempt to channel that pulp into another Country WiFi (my new duo with Nathan Alexander Pape) session, though the heat will have other ideas. Alas… Every week I am utterly overwhelmed by the amount of music coming through, and every … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.25 July 22, 2022
