Week in Review #113

April 9, 2016

Week in Review #113 FFFoxy Podcast #76 “I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather over the past few days, so hopefully the talk breaks don’t sound even more scatterbrained than usual on this episode. I wanted to keep things on track with the podcast, though, this time focusing mostly on a bunch of newer music...

I Still Have No Idea What to Put Here: Dwight’s 2015

January 8, 2016

I Still Have No Idea What to Put Here: Dwight’s 2015 In a year filled with over-hyped rhetoric, it feels a little surreal to try and parcel up my take on the experience. Honestly though, I may have felt similarly last year, if the title of my year end posts signals anything. America’s long-winded election is in full-swing… a year+ long leer...

Week in Review #97

December 5, 2015

Week in Review #97 “I had mentioned at the end of the last episode that a feature on Pumice was in the works for the weeks ahead, and I can assure you that is indeed still the case. But, in the interest of showcasing some more new music, along with a few recent record fair scores, I thought I’d go ahead and squeeze... 

Stream: YlangYlang – ‘No Exist (Feel Special)’

November 18, 2015

Stream: YlangYlang – ‘No Exist (Feel Special)’ “No Exist is about being mind-blown, deconstructing and starting again with a fresh, curious openness, somewhere on the edge of the world. Self-sufficiency, self-discovery, transcending survival by establishing new rules, interacting in new instinctive and true ways.” In truth this description... 

Week in Review #86

September 19, 2015

Week in Review #86 “Since the last podcast, things have changed over dramatically from Summer to Autumn here in Minnesota with some refreshingly cool and absolutely beautiful days of late. It’s my favorite time of year, so I welcome the change. It has also been refreshing spending the last couple of weeks assembling... 

Week in Review #84

September 5, 2015

Week in Review #84 Hamburg-based, lo-fi tuned Thokei Tapes jumped the gun on a previously reported October release date for their spectacular Sandra Bell compilation last month, titled Aureole, so here it is at the top of this week’s review. The new tape collects “EPs, Singles, Tapes & Compilation”... 

Week in Review #82

August 22, 2015

Week in Review #82 “I know I say this probably far too often, but I was really excited to share this bunch of mostly new sounds with you on this installment of the FFFoxy Podcast. I guess when that excitement starts to wane, I know it’ll be my time to walk away from all of this, but I don’t see that happening... 

Week in Review #63

April 11, 2015

Week in Review #63 Though we just missed including it in last week’s review by a few hours, I thought we could start this installment by pointing out that Adam Harper recently turned his pen toward East Asian influenced music in his latest column for the FADER; “soothing sounds to save even internet-accelerated... 

Week in Review #50

December 20, 2014

Week in Review #50 Merry Christmas in advance, happy holidays and all that, thanks for reading along with us another week, another year… welcome to 2014’s final Week in Review. This Saturday we thought we’d kick things off by sharing a tidbit from last week, that is, Brooklyn producer Jacob 2-2’s... 

Phinery Presents: Somehow Commissioned #1 (Noise)

November 4, 2014

Phinery Presents: Somehow Commissioned #1 (Noise) This week Phinery unveiled the first in what promises to be a riveting new compilation series, Somehow Commissioned, with an inaugural noise focus; though they’ve opened things up with a suitably acousmatic set, future installments will explore different genres through similarly prepared collections.... 

Opaline – Projector Mapping

October 29, 2014

Opaline – Projector Mapping As of last May, Purr Tapes no longer operates as a label, after having been putting out excellent stuff on tape since 2011. Instead, founder Hunter Peter Thompson has shifted focus to his solo music project Opaline. Projector Mapping, Hunter’s latest release as Opaline, finds him at his very best.... 

Week in Review #36

September 13, 2014

Week in Review #36 The absurdity of everything was cast in sharp relief lately by iTunes and “the world’s biggest album launch,” needless to say. Looking back on the week, for me at least, the best artistic rejoinder to that offense was an ostensibly unrelated Juno Plus interview with Vancouver producer... 

Week in Review #35

September 6, 2014

Week in Review #35 Midway this week astronomers revised their estimates of Earth and the Milk Way’s stellar neighborhood, replacing our home Virgo Supercluster with the even bigger Laniakea, 160 million parsecs / 520 million light-years across. They speculate Laniakea (Hawaiian for “immeasurable heaven”)... 

Video Premiere: Demonstration Synthesis – “Isabella”

July 31, 2014

Video Premiere: Demonstration Synthesis – “Isabella” If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve no doubt caught wind of Montreal’s Daniel Leznoff and his lucid, kosmische synth guise Demonstration Synthesis. Leznoff has been somewhat of a prolific underdog at this point, having released several tapes on various labels before the year’s... 

Andrew is Tired – Crowd Control

July 2, 2014

Andrew is Tired – Crowd Control Following his effusively elegant Drift/Shore tape on Holy Page last year, Andrew Kendall returns as Andrew is Tired with Crowd Control, a tape of similarly distant tones issued by the Phinery imprint. While Drift/Shore focused on eight relatively brief tracks to explore drifting, decaying, and...
