The Capsule Garden Vol 1.26 July 29, 2022

Another week of blazing temperatures has given way to torrential rain, flooding, and tropical humidity. Climate change is going well. In better news, Carl Antonowicz (Open Casket Sound System, the real star of Foxy Digitalis’s Illustrated Reviews, etc.) and I finally played some music together after talking about it for most of the year. More on that soon. In the meantime, here’s a heap of music worth … Continue reading The Capsule Garden Vol 1.26 July 29, 2022

Personifying Florida With Euglossine

Foxy Digitalis depends on our awesome readers to keep things rolling. Pledge your support today via our Patreon. With summer starting to show its earliest signs here in Tulsa, my season connection with Tristan Whitehill’s work as Euglossine always gets deeper. Based in Gainesville, Florida, Euglossine is a bizarre and beguiling mirror of the environment where Whitehill composes and records. It’s sunkissed through-and-through with a prismatic diffusion that … Continue reading Personifying Florida With Euglossine

Euglossine “Some Kind of Forever”

I can still remember listening to Tristan Whitehill’s earliest Euglossine experiments on the inimitable Housecraft label and being immediately drawn to his unique sound design and how the smallest details came together to create woozy tropical worlds. In the intervening decade, Whitehill’s palette has grown and his approach augmented, but the kaleidoscopic vision that always seemed to center his work has only become more refined.  … Continue reading Euglossine “Some Kind of Forever”

Foxy Digitalis Mix #28: Taranoya

To kick off the week before Halloween, one of our favorite new artists, Taranoya, gets in with a mix of melancholic ghostly vibes. It’s a rollercoaster that’ll rip hearts out on the one hand and go positively astral on the other. I highly recommend listening while reading the Foxy Digitalis interview with her for the full impact. Taranoya’s fantastic debut, Becoming, is out now on … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #28: Taranoya

Finding Her Place and Becoming Taranoya

Though she was born and raised in Iran, Taranoya’s music combines a wide array of surprising and disparate ideas to create something singular and captivating. The aural landscapes she builds are like dreams of other worlds, places where anything seems possible. Deep listening reveals trenchant emotions and a thirst for uncovering hard truths through sonic exploration. Using an assortment of synths and electronics, Taranoya builds … Continue reading Finding Her Place and Becoming Taranoya

Taranoya “Becoming”

Emotional growth is slow and sometimes the process seems to move in reverse. There’s no real endpoint, either, but each forward movement is like another notch in the celestial plane and it holds a special kind of viscous magic. Taranoya captures this spirit beautifully on her debut album, Becoming, lacing minimal synth work around her towering, ethereal vocals. Vast open spaces become a haven for lost … Continue reading Taranoya “Becoming”

Foxy Digitalis Mix #16: Marcel Sletten

Marcel Sletten first came onto my radar because of his stellar label, Primordial Void. He’s released countless memorable albums, including his own work. Last week he released his debut full-length, Vicious Kisses, on the excellent sound as language label and it’s been a regular accompaniment to my early morning. Described as “Psychedelic folk music for the digital age,” Sletten’s sense of humor and playful sensibilities … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix #16: Marcel Sletten
