FFFoxy Podcast #111

I hope you are all having or, depending on when you’re stumbling upon this, that you had a happy holidays. I was considering putting together a sort of companion show to the Favorite Music of 2017 post that I put up on the Free Form Freakout website, but as I’ve been listening through some of the music that has arrived here late in the year, I’ll admit that there is plenty more that could have easily made it onto that post. (Note to self: expand the lists and extend the date if you do such a thing again in the future.) Anyways, I figured that on this installment I’d just move ahead and showcase some of those albums that weren’t listed instead, including stunning new works from Félicia Atkinson, Aquarelle, John Maus, and Timo van Luijk & Mark Harwood. I also realized that there were some exceptional releases sitting on my shelves, a few with very timely connections, which I’ve never played on the show before, so I decided to include some of these throughout as well. You’ll hear material from Z’ev (who sadly passed away on December 16th), Sapropelic Pycnic (Ka Baird’s project and now title of her latest solo album on Drag City), and Crystalized Movements (whose Mind Disaster album has been reissued on LP once again by Twisted Village). To me, this all seemed like a good way to look back, while at the same time keeping things moving forward into the new year. I hope you enjoy this episode. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments. As always, thanks for looking and listening.
