The Gradual Progression is a transformative collection of new music by Greg Fox. The seven pieces of The Gradual Progression activate spiritual states through physical means, Fox’s rigorous inner rhythms the mandalic vessel for unbound expression and arrangement. TGP signals both a reconciliation of disparate musical ventures and a new nirvanic stage in the artist’s oeuvre.
TGP includes contributions from musicians Curtis Santiago, Michael Beharie, Maria Kim Grand, and Justin Frye, all offering various voices through instrument and from within. Fox considers the power of Sensory Percussion, the software program developed by Tlacael Esparza that helped facilitate the vision for TGP, unprecedented – something akin to magic. Tauba Auerbach lends her own brand of magic to the artwork for TGP.
Watch the inner / extra terrestrial video for “Catching An L,” the first offering from TGP, below. The video footage was shot by Greg and repurposed by Johann Rashid:

A certain someone spirits above the second part of Palmbomen II’s Memories of Cindy saga, a passage of five plaintive cuts rendered with spineful percussion, succinct melodies, and classic acid and New Beat textures and treatments.
Cindy’s story may take a darker direction musically in Memories of Cindy Pt. 2, but Kai’s appearance on Real Talk alludes only to strange ways that make up a normal day in Carmel Vista. If you missed part one, back track a bit or enter Palmbomen II’s world at your own risk.
The first three Palmbomen 12”s, Memories of Cindy Pt. 1 – 3, will be available exclusively on vinyl. Memories of Cindy Pt. 4 will be available exclusively as a “box set” including the first three 12”s. Each set includes a unique, pre-tragedy polaroid portrait of Cindy taken by Kai Hugo.

Inspired by Moogfest’s invitation to soundtrack a meditation space during their festival in Durham, North Carolina, this weekend, we assembled a cast of our favorite musicians to produce palettes of peaceful sound to share there and beyond.
Peaceful Protest features six long-form compositions and recordings from Baltra, Kate NV, Zach Cooper, You’re Me, C. Lavender and Raica spread across three cassettes housed in a canvas package. NYC wordsmith and beacon of reason, Rafael Sanchez, composed a poem printed and included in the package.
To mark this effort on today’s first day of Moogfest, we are sharing “KAK HOW,” a portion of Moscow-based musician Kate NV’s contribution to Peaceful Protest:
We have copies available to purchase at Moogfest. If you won’t be there this weekend, don’t fret – you can buy from our webstore and Bandcamp, with all proceeds going to LGBTQ Center of Durham. Only 200 copies are made for this world.
