Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 3, #4: Eve Maret

Eve Maret’s sonic universes always surprise me. She fuses disparate threads from the cosmic layers and rhythms surrounding us, tying them together with expansive motifs. Her latest album, Earth and Space, is sonically rich and immersive and glides on emotional waves that saturate every chord progression and arpeggio. It’s a stunning, memorable record. Maret says this mix is a selection of songs that inspired Earth and Space and … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 3, #4: Eve Maret

The Music of Pharoah Sanders
