FFFoxy Podcast #100: øjeRum feature

I put together a special show for you to mark this 100th installment of the FFFoxy Podcast. In the first hour I chat with Paw Grabowski, the Danish minimalist and collagist that produces work under the name, øjeRum. I have admired his output for the past few years and was fortunate enough to get to work with him through our in-house label, Round Bale Recordings, on his latest full-length called Skygge. Whether composing long-form ambient pieces or more nocturnal folk melodies, there is a very clear and cohesive vision to all of øjeRum’s material. I talk with Paw about both his music and his unique collage art, and I play a sampling of the varied styles from throughout the øjeRum catalog. Then, in the second half, Paw put together a terrific, continuous mix of music from some of the contemporary artists and works that he is quite fond of, which I decided to let play out uninterrupted for the duration of the show. I hope you enjoy this new episode. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments. As always, thanks for looking and listening.
