marine eyes “chamomile”

The lush tones of secret garden hymnals become tangible, ethereal landscapes in Cynthia Bernard’s hands as marine eyes. The ten vignettes on chamomile don’t simply tell a story; they invite listeners to find their own narrative within these lilting arrangements. The empty space is nestled within the warm synths, expressive guitars, and magnetic field records. Somewhere we can immerse ourselves and find a hypnotic calm. Stretched melodies … Continue reading marine eyes “chamomile”

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #13: Influx & SYNE

SYNE is Dennis Huddleston, best known for his work as 36 and Influx is James Bernard (side note: check out the fantastic new awakened souls (his duo with marine eyes) album that’s just out).

Patricia Wolf “I’ll Look For You In Others”

Like the open spaces between blurred dandelions on the cover of Patricia Wolf’s debut, I’ll Look For You In Others, the experience of grief is a bewildering maze that can seem endless and impossible to navigate. It can flit between feeling like a slow-motion dream and an out-of-control descent into an oddly-alluring void. Processing all of it, we begin to parse the connection of the impermanence … Continue reading Patricia Wolf “I’ll Look For You In Others”
