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

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #28: Pinkcourtesyphone

I’m not sure much needs to be said here, but when Pinkcourtesyphone delivers a mix subtitled “gelatinous suspension of beliefs,” there’s only one way this is going. Hit play, fall down jagged chasms and get stuck in a vat of enchanted ooze where dance parties wobble enthusiastically and scientific discovery is etched in puddles of spectral recitations. Massive. His new album, All Intensive Purposes, will be … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #28: Pinkcourtesyphone

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #25: Andy Cartwright

Andy Cartwright’s Seabuckthorn project has covered a lot of ground in its 10+ run, but there’s always a liminal feeling to it that I’m helplessly drawn to. Cartwright has an innate feel for otherworldly melodies and a remarkable ability to condense expansive ideas into concise aural structures. His new solo album, Form Less Ness, blooms in similar spaces while bringing an air vulnerability into its expressive glances. Cartwright’s … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #25: Andy Cartwright

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #21: c o m t e

There is such a lovely, calm spirit flowing through c o m t e’s recent album, Cipher, and he carries that same feeling into this fantastic mix. I’ve listened to it early in the morning as I was starting my day, half awake and it helped sent good intentions for the day, but it’s also been an excellent companion in the garden with my hands buried … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #21: c o m t e

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.5: February 11, 2022

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon. This week has felt extra long and I’m not sure why. I was telling someone that the level of tiredness I feel these days is beyond anything I’ve experienced, and I’m near certain I’m not even depressed. It’s just existential at this point. Anyway, a ton of good tunes this … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.5: February 11, 2022

Foxy Digitalis Mix #10: Matt Evans

Matt Evans’ beautiful album, touchless, has stuck with me since first hearing it a few months ago. With this mix, Evans breathes sunkissed vibes into the ether and gives us a featherweight ecstatic zone to get lost in. But don’t take it from me, here’s what Matt says about it: This is a good mix for high temperature late afternoon daydreams or 10-hour car rides … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #10: Matt Evans

KMRU “Logue”

Across long stretches of KMRU’s brilliant Logue, electronic sounds become tangible landscapes bathed in prismatic light. Synesthesia flickers through vivid colors teeming with organic aural ecosystems as KMRU explores unexpected sonic combinations spread across nine memorable tracks. For one of the planet’s most compelling ambient musicians, Logue pushes into fresh directions as he explores new pathways to bring this intensely personal expression to life. I … Continue reading KMRU “Logue”

KMRU “ftpim”

Joseph Kamaru makes unconventionally beautiful music. The two tracks on ftpim move slow but bathe you in a cold, unyielding sheen of sound. Something KMRU does well is blur the line between his sound and the environment. His music falls off the page and ingrains itself into the outside world, filling cracks and disappearing into dark corners. It’s kind of unreal, honestly. “Figures Emerge” sings … Continue reading KMRU “ftpim”

Notes From the Jewel Garden #1: Back to the Future

Picking up old threads as 2013 bleeds into 2021. Hello again… On January 31st, 2013 when I pressed ‘publish’ on the final installment of my long-running column, The Long Decline, I 100% believed that was the end of Foxy Digitalis in any form. I hadn’t dropped any hints or made any announcements leading up to the formal declaration I made in that piece, but I had … Continue reading Notes From the Jewel Garden #1: Back to the Future
