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

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.24 July 15, 2022

The heat continues creeping up to unbearable levels here in Tulsa, and the forecast worsens daily (110 on the horizon). It’s brutal. We always have gnarly summers here, but 2022 is pushing that too far. What a year. I’m trying to stay cool in a dark house. Fun.  In other news, The Jewel Garden launched a new Singles Club for subscribers. As a teenager, I … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.24 July 15, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.23: July 8, 2022

Another week where not a lot makes sense, but at least we’ve got some more excellent tunes to dig into. Cyril Meysson & Sheng Jie La Chaleur Des Choses Sans Nom (Dub Cthonic) Spectral facades glow against a dark backdrop infused with frenetic energy and determined drones. Meysson’s guitar tone cracks through the wailing sphere of Jie’s electric cello, encasing it in a metallic sheen. Movements elevate … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.23: July 8, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.22: July 1, 2022

Another week in the books. Another pile of excellent tunes to dig through. Last week, my label, The Jewel Garden, released this blown-out proto dub gem from Carl Antonowicz’s Open Casket Sound System. Carl illustrates/collaborates on the Illustrated Reviews with me for Foxy Digitalis, and he’s put together a 16-page illustrated zine to go along with the album. Check it out! Meanwhile, on to the reviews… … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.22: July 1, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.21: June 24, 2022

Well, I hoped to maybe get an installment of The Capsule Garden out while were in the Pacific Northwest, that obviously didn’t happen. There’s been a bunch of great, interesting music coming out in that time and I’ll never get to it all, so here’s a smattering of music I listened to on the trip. Golden Donna It Won’t Be There When You Reach For It (Self-Released) … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.21: June 24, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.20: June 3, 2022

I had an experience I never wanted to have this week when a bunch of friends and acquaintances started texting and emailing to see if we were alright. A mass shooting in Tulsa was inevitable and I’m frankly surprised it doesn’t happen here more often. It’s all so fucked. We’re fine, though, obviously – I mean as much as anyone is fine these days.  Anyway, … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.20: June 3, 2022
