The Capsule Garden Vol 1.37: October 28, 2022

The Capsule Garden returns this week after a brief hiatus to deal with personal/family issues. I’m consistently overwhelmed by the volume of music that comes across my desk and through my inbox each week. The deluge grows monthly, but I continue to check out as much of it as possible. But I’m one person, so there’s only so much I can listen to. That said, … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.37: October 28, 2022

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #35: Carlos Ferreira

I love when I ask an artist to make a mix for the site, and the end result is something that manages to embody the underlying spirit of their own work. Brazilian composer Carlos Ferreira’s discography is vast. His music is pinned to the surface with subtle force while the ends drift skyward like loose threads trying to detach themselves and float away. There’s always … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #35: Carlos Ferreira

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #27: Jordan Christoff

I continue to be grateful that Jordan Christoff and I crossed paths in the last year. He is a fountain of special music, from his solo work and various collaborations to PJS and Anarchist Mountains, his duo with his brother Stefan. If I want to travel somewhere magical from the comfort of my living room, Christoff’s music always takes me there. Unsurprisingly, he brought that same craft … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #27: Jordan Christoff

more eaze “oneiric”

New solo music from Mari Maurice always makes the world a better place. I still go back to 2020’s mari regularly, but since oneiric turned up, it’s taken over. If ‘oneiric’ means dreaming, or related to dreams, then oneiric is a fantasy world where dreams are a tangible reality; where our emotions are tactile figures embracing us close in one moment before pushing away and disappearing completely the next.  Opener “a … Continue reading more eaze “oneiric”

Foxy Digitalis Mix #19: TUSK Editions

TUSK Festival is a UK mainstay, offering some of the most unique programming around and generally bending minds and opening new avenues with their events. I feel a real kinship with TUSK’s mission to bring supposedly difficult music to more mainstream situations and audiences.

On a Sailboat in a Tornado: An Interview with M. Sage

Matthew Sage is a patient force, always moving in new and surprising directions, always with an ear listening for the heartbeat inside it all. His work is intimate and vulnerable, though not obviously so. When you listen through the stratigraphy of it all, there’s an order and a foundation, but the piece you remember, the reason Sage’s work resonates in such a deep, visceral way … Continue reading On a Sailboat in a Tornado: An Interview with M. Sage
