–___–__ “The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid”

CD edition available from Mondoj While I continue dreaming of a new more eaze solo album, I’m thankful she keeps releasing these stunning collaborations. —__–___ finds her joining forces with the inimitable Seth Graham and their debut, The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid, is a lush landscape littered with hope, heartbreak, and the emotional detritus we hang onto while being crushed under the weight of simply surviving in … Continue reading –___–__ “The Heart Pumps Kool-Aid”

Track Premiere: –___–__ “Julius Eastman / NY Metro Xylophone Player” (feat. metoronori)

There’s something that’s simultaneously emotionally satisfying and completely draining about “Julius Eastman/NY Metro Xylophone Player,” the newest single from the impossibly-named —__–___ (aka more eaze and Seth Graham). Visceral tugs radiate with a sinuous attachment from more eaze’s wistful violin notes as they grow and shrink back into the darkened corners. Graham and more eaze have such a deep understanding and symbiotic collaboration that even … Continue reading Track Premiere: –___–__ “Julius Eastman / NY Metro Xylophone Player” (feat. metoronori)

Finding the Edge of the Map w/ more eaze

An interview with Mari Maurice about histories, soul mates, & what it means to connect. Plus a couple favorite cocktail recipes for good measure! There are moments on Mari Maurice’s latest album as more eaze, yearn, that make time stop cold. She has this innate ability to mix wide-ranging elements and influences into beautiful, emotion-filled pop collages. There nothing else that sounds like more eaze. Her work … Continue reading Finding the Edge of the Map w/ more eaze

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
