gabby fluke-mogul “LOVE SONGS”

Love is harsh. Visceral. A cocoon and a screaming stitch. gabby fluke-mogul’s follow-up to last year’s threshold (one of my favorite albums of 2021) is invigorating in a different way, but just as impactful. Their music has always been saturated with vulnerability and openness, but on LOVE SONGS that spirit is held closer. fluke-mogul puts so much raw emotion into their playing that it becomes infectious. They are a … Continue reading gabby fluke-mogul “LOVE SONGS”

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.18: May 13, 2022

Sonne always … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.18: May 13, 2022

The Capsule Garden Vol 1.12: April 1, 2022

Been in solo dad mode for a chunk of this week as Eden is at a conference in Chicago (let me mention how jealous I am since Chicago is arguably my favorite city in the US and it has been way too long since I’ve been there). Add in some other unexpected, self-inflicted clusterfucks and I wasn’t sure this edition of The Capsule Garden would … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.12: April 1, 2022

Jessica Pavone “When No One Around You is There but Nowhere to be Found”

Jessica Pavone’s ensemble works have been listening staples in the past few years, but her solo viola recordings have a visceral edge that’s saturated with an ebullient joy. Her work is always engaging in the way she charts tonal passages and plays with tempo, yet when it’s just her and the viola, the gravity is different. Whether she’s practicing extended drone techniques or spirited, bouncy … Continue reading Jessica Pavone “When No One Around You is There but Nowhere to be Found”

Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

I’ve been wanting to make some kind of mix for the site for a while after having such a blast collaborating on the Halloween and Xmas mixes, so starting the year off with some Charlatan action on Foxy Digitalis feels right. After numerous stops and starts, I finally settled on a mix of one instrument/solo performance (mostly) pieces. There’s a little wiggle room, of course … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

There’s this magical moment on Catherine Sikora’s newest album, corners, specifically on the piece “Sometimes, Acceptance is Better Than Love,” where she stops playing for a brief moment and the sound of her saxophone hangs there, resonating in warmth while decaying into nothingness.

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon. In the past year or so, gabby fluke-mogul’s work has stuck with me like no one else’s. The way they construct sound with their violin is ageless. They are sounds built from the ancient geology beneath us; from shards of broken cosmic glass; from hidden corners within their heart and … Continue reading The Ritual & The Practice of gabby fluke-mogul
