The Capsule Garden Vol 1.41: December 9, 2022

There’s a decent chance this will be the final Capsule Garden for the year, but I’m not quite ready to call it and have hopes for one last installment next week. But if this is it, 41 of these columns in the space of a year is pretty incredible if I can pat myself on the back for a minute. I love doing this, though … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.41: December 9, 2022

Focus Within the Blur: An Interview With Cole Pulice

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon or subscribe to The Jewel Garden. Cole Pulice’s new album, Scry, has stuck with me. The clarity of their ideas sings through in each winding melody and each whimsical phrasing. How the sonic approach of Scry heightens, the impact of the feeling woven into each thread of each song is remarkable. But especially in the … Continue reading Focus Within the Blur: An Interview With Cole Pulice

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 1.12: April 1, 2022

Been in solo dad mode for a chunk of this week as Eden is at a conference in Chicago (let me mention how jealous I am since Chicago is arguably my favorite city in the US and it has been way too long since I’ve been there). Add in some other unexpected, self-inflicted clusterfucks and I wasn’t sure this edition of The Capsule Garden would … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.12: April 1, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.9: March 11, 2022

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon. It’s been a busy week to the point I’ve completely lost track of time. I woke up in a panic thinking it was Friday (I’m writing this Thursday afternoon) and that I hadn’t put together the Capsule Garden for this week. Thankfully I was wrong and now here we are. … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.9: March 11, 2022

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #1: Field Patterns

Field Patterns has left an indelible imprint on me with his soft, flowing soundscapes that evoke feelings of pensive warmth. I often lose myself in his sonic worlds as soon as I hit play. Last year’s self-titled album on Aural Canyon was a psychedelic trip through spiraling landscapes while his newest, Heavy Palms, is a floating tropical dream where whimsy and contemplation melt together in … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #1: Field Patterns

Lake Mary “Once It’s All On the Ground”

Like many of us, for almost two years I’ve dreamt about life outside of boundaries, without tethers. There are a lot of people I haven’t seen in a while and a lot of things I haven’t done in just as long. Sometimes, I barely notice. Most of the time, it’s the sword of Damocles just begging for any reason to finally drop. Music has been … Continue reading Lake Mary “Once It’s All On the Ground”

Foxy Digitalis Mix #13: Maurizio Merli

Maurizio Merli’s LP1 came out digitally last year, but Aural Canyon heard it and knew it needed to get some kind of physical release. Now available on cassette, this groove-soaked prog is a late summer revelation. Perfect for socially distanced parties of one, dancing alone in the neon pink sunset. Merli is determined to find a good time. This mix subtitled A World of Ashes, picks that theme up and … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #13: Maurizio Merli

Tyresta & Ruan “Already Complete”

Focusing can be one of my biggest challenges. There are days where everything seems just out of reach, drifting by in the periphery like ghosts fading into the ether. Beautifully crafted moments are crystallized in Tyresta and Ruan’s collaborative Already Complete, purposefully at a distance with an invitation extended. There’s a sheen across the entirety of Already Complete where everything feels new, untouched. Arpeggios break apart, drifting skyward … Continue reading Tyresta & Ruan “Already Complete”
