The Long Decline: The Final Chapter

2003 was a really big year for me. 2013 is going to be similarly monumental. Digitalis and Foxy Digitalis will both be 10 years-old in 2013. Eden and I will celebrate being together for 10 years. The first (and probably only) DIGIKID will be born. It’s no coincidence that these events all happened around...

9 1/2 Years.

Nine and a half years ago, Brad and I had just gotten married. Digitalis was new, I had just started going back to college, and we decided to start another new adventure: Foxy Digitalis.

No Humans Allowed #4: 2012 Annual Report

Funny how personal taste can meander like a neighborhood drunk stumbling home from the pub. Before 2011 I was a hard-minimal-dub techno kind of bro. If I heard a track that either was dark/heavy or relentless/banging or psychedelic/droning, then the chances were solid I was digging it. This is really nothing more than demographics:...

Best FREE* Releases of 2012

So I was going to indulge in yet another year-end retrospective, because the urge was nearly irrepressible. (You can check out my Top 20 list here.) After all, 2012 has been one of the best years this pessimistic music nerd can remember. Aside from all the amazing music I’ve come across, I am grateful to...

My Year in Music, 2012

I was wondering if I would even bring myself to do another year ending wrap-up for Foxy Digitalis since I already posted a massive recap of my favorite releases elsewhere. But being that this is my very favorite music website, I just had to chuck a couple more cents into the pot (even though...

Best of 2012 List

I thought 2012 was a lovely year for music. I was very impressed how many of the musicians I’ve seen since I started writing for Foxy Digitalis really progressed. I remember getting sent Tidal’s debut tape in 2010 and being so struck by how nuanced and intelligent it was, and it was great to...

Travis Bird : Year’s End

At the moment I’m heavily preoccupied with reading David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest, so in homage I’ll write only one sentence in each category, and squeeze whatever I need to say into it. Onward to changes in 2013, I say! Best Album Zelienople, The World Is A House On Fire (Type) Rounding out another...

Another Year Gone

Another year gone, so it’s time for another year-end review.  From my vantage point, 2012 was yet again a great year in recorded music.  It’s all too easy to be negative and complain about what’s going on, but truthfully there was a ton of inspired and inspiring music made this past year.  As before,...

In a personal sense, 2012 was the best year of my life so far. So many great things happened to me that I actually struggle to remember them all. In April, thanks to my wife and family, I was lucky enough to visit Japan, where my scientist friend lives and works. I was there...

2012 — the World Rolls On.

Ah, 2012.  Dabblers fond of ethnocentric misappropriations of the ideas and philosophies of the past found a reason to fear the year’s end, but no apocalypse awaited us–instead 2012 was a year like so many others, 365 days long, featuring four seasons, fifty-two weeks, and twelve months like all the rest.  What did make...

The Year In New Age

New age music continues to occupy a strange place in our contemporary culture. It’s still often denigrated and left to gather dust in CD bargain bins and abandoned yoga studios. At the same time, however, groups like Emeralds continue to whet the public’s seeming appetite for just the sorts of synth tones and careful...

End Of A Year: 2012′s Best Albums

Among endless stream hours of tracks and full-lengths, many of them in digital-only format, 2012 was a tremendous year for music. Somehow we all have come to one point before where we have to foresee a sonic future. But there really isn’t an end to it and I actually don’t see the point of...
