2 a.m.: FFFoxy Podcast: Ernesto Diaz-Infante Having done a couple of special feature shows on the last few episodes of the FFFoxy Podcast, the new music was starting to pile up in the ever so slow to be refurbished FFF bunker for episode #43. Seriously, listening to, and trying to make sense of, music over the past two months has involved sitting amongst stacks of dust-covered boxes in a dimly lit corner of a basement. Not necessarily an ideal listening environment to say the least, but I can’t complain. First world problems . . . blah, blah, blah. At any rate, things are starting to come together and I’m happy to be able to share some of this new music with you all this time around. There’s material from brand new tape imprints like Aught, Dionysian Tapes, and Adhesive Sounds – all of which are dealing with interesting abstract electronic sounds and are off to promising starts. There’s also plenty of old favorites like German Army, Greg Kelley and Jason Lescalleet, Rain Drinkers, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, and Vanessa Rossetto – all delivering the goods as usual. There’s much more, of course, but give the latest episode a listen and see what you think. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
