Track Premiere: Aaron Turner & Jon Mueller “The Yellow Bath”

It’s always a good day when two heavyweights like Aaron Turner and Jon Mueller collide. Following up on 2021’s stellar In the Falls, the duo excavates through the bedrock to find the heaviest atmospheres. The collaborative nature of their work crackles through “The Yellow Bath,” the first single from their upcoming, proper debut on American Dreams, Now That You’ve Found It. Turner’s guitar is a viscous mélange … Continue reading Track Premiere: Aaron Turner & Jon Mueller “The Yellow Bath”

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 1.20: 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

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #23: Greta Ruth

Greta Ruth is an artist with a clear, uncompromising vision who isn’t afraid of venturing out into the dark, deep waters and seeing what she can find. Her recent EP, Milk Tooth​/​Hull, sees her experimenting with vocal-only compositions and finding new, fertile ground. I hope it’s only a start and she mines these ideas deeper, but wherever her music leads will be a light worth following. … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #23: Greta Ruth

Track Premiere: saajtak “There’s a Leak in the Shielding”

There’s this feeling like some kind of aural vertigo in Brooklyn/Detroit art rock quartet saajtak’s “There’s a Leak in the Shielding” as though two separate songs are happening simultaneously, magically aligned and ethereally potent. Divergent sounds collide at surprising angles, melting together to create verdant sonic architecture.  The band’s approach has often centered around improvisation, but COVID-19 forced a changed approach where they would work … Continue reading Track Premiere: saajtak “There’s a Leak in the Shielding”

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon. Ross Gentry’s music has been on my radar for well over a decade now, first as Villages and now under his given name.

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

I’ve been wanting to make some kind of mix for the site for a while after having such a blast collaborating on the Halloween and Xmas mixes, so starting the year off with some Charlatan action on Foxy Digitalis feels right. After numerous stops and starts, I finally settled on a mix of one instrument/solo performance (mostly) pieces. There’s a little wiggle room, of course … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

Daniel Wyche “Earthwork”

Chicago guitarist and composer Daniel Wyche turns the grief of dealing with loss into an outward swinging pendulum. Earthwork, written and recorded over a veritable lifetime, speaks to the complicated tangles within us; to the idea that the impermanence of living and breathing is offset by the permanence of memory. Wyche uses these soundwebs as a way to sift through the countless tendrils that need to … Continue reading Daniel Wyche “Earthwork”
