The Focused Energy of Foxygen Captures New Album … And Star Power Live
Deprived Of New Foxygen, You Must Listen To This Vintage Cafe

January 27, 2014 - Foxygen is the work of Jonathan Rado and Sam France. Today we revisit a Vintage Cafe from early 2013 around the release of their very successful album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic.
Quirky upstate New York four-piece Foxygen got crazy in a late-night Non-COMM set yesterday that blended Doors-esque poppy psychedelia with punk-y dissonance. Check out the setlist below, and listen back to the set in its entirety
"Foxygen blend their love of classic rock and psychedelic music in to something fresh and new and very well crafted. They manage to spin the past into the future like magicians."

Ok, so even before you hit play on the new album from Foxygen on Jagjaguwar it's hard not to admire the title. We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic exudes not just confidence and ambition, but a level of creativity and open-mindedness that excites you from the start.
We kick off the new year with the fast-rising experimental pop-rock project of Sam France and Jonathan Rado.
