Foxygen is a breath of fresh nostalgic air. Sounding like they stepped out of a time machine sent to the future from the 60’s, Foxygen shows us 20 and 30-somethings what we missed by being born in the 70’s and 80’s. Jagjaguwar describes Foxgen as “…the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need.” You can’t listen to “San Francisco” and “Make It Known” (below), and not agree with that description.
Just like Sean’s obsession with Veronica Falls, I am equally obsessed with Foxygen. I can’t, no, I won’t stop listening to their new album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, which just released on Jagjaguwar. You need Foxygen in your life. Download the songs below. Go out and buy their records. Be sure to catch them on tour, which starts up in a couple of days.
Foxygen – San Francisco from We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic (2013)
