Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #55: Turn on the Sunlight

I can’t remember how I first came across Turn On The Sunlight, but it immediately grabbed me. Multi-instrumentalist Jesse Peterson’s project continually leaves me stranded high above the clouds, basking in his music’s bright, open spaces. Turn On The Sunlight’s newest is Peterson’s most ambitious: a double LP on Moon Glyph entitled You Belong, out this Friday, October 14. It’s special. Pick up a copy HERE. In the … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #55: Turn on the Sunlight

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 1.35: October 7, 2022

And so we find ourselves at another Bandcamp Day (as our inboxes overflow and the river spills out of its banks). Of course (of course!), I am adding to the deluge. The Jewel Garden has a few new offerings for those curious – Boneset’s The Nightshade (the debut of a new horror-ish project) and Peak Eloquence’s Phantom Dreams (the first new one from this project in a year, this time solo … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.35: October 7, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.33: September 16, 2022

The hits keep coming here in September, the worst of the months. Can’t it just be fall already? Irarrázabal / Baldwin Grips (Tripticks Tapes) I can’t imagine something more in my wheelhouse than a double-double bass album with two of my favorite bassists, yet Grips still exceeds my expectations. Both Amanda Irarrázabal and Nat Baldwin are no strangers to Foxy Digitalis as they’ve put out countless diamonds in the … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.33: September 16, 2022

Vic Bang “Burung”

Crystal clear melodies generate fleeting patterns across a digital canvas on Argentinian composer Vic Bang’s new one for Moon Glyph, Burung. It’s rare to hear songs so pristine and precise that nothing seems off or out of place, yet it’s all so warm and enchanting. Based on the sound palette alone, I’d expect the world of Burung to be a sterile, robotic place that finds its power in … Continue reading Vic Bang “Burung”

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #11: Regional Attraction

I admit to being a little biased when it comes to the excellent Portland label, Regional Attraction, but that’s okay. Run by my longtime friend, Andrew Heuback, there’s a curatorial consistency to the label that hits so many of my weaknesses. Heuback has always had great taste and his previous label, Overland Shark, was a jumping off point. Regional Attraction feels like the slightly-older, cooler … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #11: Regional Attraction

Parker Sprout “Milk in the Sun”

Milk in the Sun is an odd choice for the title of a record as sun-dappled and scrappily appealing as this. Pitched more as psychedelic indie pop, and out on the well-respected psych label Moon Glyph, Milk in the Sun is more in the vein of a slightly buzzed c86 color scheme and some of that sound’s classic participants. Opener “Peace and Love” initially wrongfoots the record, a … Continue reading Parker Sprout “Milk in the Sun”

Foxy Digitalis Mix #34: SiP

From now on I’m going to call Jimmy Lacy the velvet assassin because who wouldn’t want that as a nickname? All kidding aside, his recent collaboration as SiP with Prezzano (out now on Moon Glyph) is a gem that’s spirited the transition from summer to fall quite nicely. Here’s Lacy’s description of this damn fine mix: My thinking behind this collection was to capture the … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #34: SiP

SiP/Prezzano s/t

I was smitten with Jimmy Lacy’s last SiP album, Leos Naturals, but this collaboration with Pete Prezzano (who did show up on Leos playing melodica) gets into some different, calmer zones. Where Leos careened down a slide of tropical-infused grooves, we’re now living life at a much slower pace at the foot of the waterfall. Everything is saturated in hues of green and blue while levitating arpeggios zigzag through the … Continue reading SiP/Prezzano s/t
