2 a.m. FFFoxy Podcoast: Jackie McDowell Lots of great new music to sift through on this episode of the FFFoxy Podcast #36. We have been especially loving the latest albums from Jackie McDowell (who formerly recorded under the name Inez Lightfoot) and Armure, along with recent releases from the House of Alchemy, Crash Symbols, and FET Press labels. FET Press, working together with the great Desire Path Recordings imprint, will be unleashing an ambitious project entitled Line Drawings in the weeks ahead that features some of our favorites, including Nathan McLaughlin and Cody Yantis whose work appeared on this episode. We’re looking forward to playing material from that one. We also broke out a few old gems in the form of Moolah, Tart, and Roy Montgomery’s terrific collection 324 E. 13th Street #7, which was just reissued on vinyl in a expanded edition with new artwork and liners on Liz Harris’s Yellow Electric imprint. Hope you enjoy this episode. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments. See below for complete playlist.
