Today on Transmissions: Haley Fohr, better known as Circuit des Yeux and Jackie Lynn. Her latest is called iO, and it’s a stunning work of art rock bravado. No one sounds like Fohr—she possesses a four octave voice—and few artists are pushing as intensely as she is these days. She joined us to discuss the evolution of Jackie Lynn, her label buying her a star, and of course, stunt work.

Proceed With Caution is the second two bonafide heaters that guitarist Calvin Keys recorded for Black Jazz Records. Originally released in 1974, Keys’ sophomore session as leader honed the free-flowing spiritual soul-jazz of Shawn-Neeq into more complex and layered compositions, bolstered by the broader instrumentation of a septet that included a mix of session vets and Black Jazz mainstays. As the title implies, all expectations should be checked at the door. While most of the album delivers an eloquent punch, Keys and company aren’t above getting a little dirty if the occasion calls.

Cinematic soundscapes abound. In early October of last year, Maston and L’Eclair traveled to Leysin – a small ski village high in the Swiss Alps, and home to Ritmo Studio. Joined by a small film crew, and engineer Benoit Gerard, the group recorded live versions of selections from the Maston catalog, including songs from the albums Tulips, Panorama and 2021’s Souvenir.

Garcia Peoples have been on the move. Since we last rendezvoused with the band they have expanded to a sextet performing live feats that are leaving audiences in puddles of their own diethylamide daydreams. If that wasn’t enough they still found time to cut a new album, Dodging Dues, with Mr. Auxiliary himself – Matt Sweeney – resulting in a tighter and more concise record that still goes hard on the choogle. For their second Lagniappe Session the group tackles a trio of artists whose influences orbit this new album and beyond.

Patrick Lefler is a key figure in Toronto’s new psychedelic scene. As the mastermind behind the revolving doors of ROY, his recent releases have included an extraterrestrial concept album, a trip back to the garage, and a collection of soothing synth waves to coax listeners into slumber. For his latest project, Lefler attempts to unshackle music from the constraints of capitalism itself. To accomplish this seemingly impossible task, he offers the antithesis: a free download.

Considered a monumental flop at the time of its release, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie has since developed a vehement cult following. It’s widely regarded as one of John Cassavetes’ best films and Ben Gazzara’s greatest on-screen performance. Part of the delayed attraction may be that audiences have finally caught up to what Cassavetes was attempting to do. At a time when other American directors such as Coppola and Scorsese were releasing films that would serve as the consummate blueprint for future genre films, Cassavetes was already eradicating pre-conceived narrative standards and deconstructing archetypical characters, searching for the unaffected moments where these histrionic gangsters and gamblers could be vulnerable, flawed, and resolutely human.
