WFUV CD of the Week: Foxygen

by Sarah Wardrop

Foxygen songs might nod at some familiar sounds, but they never seem to go in expected directions, and that's thanks to the melodic mad science of Sam France and Jonathan Rado. The LA duo is one of FUV's New Artists to Watch in 2013, and their latest album is called We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic.

I have yet to see how they translate the material onstage, but there are a few upcoming chances to check out the band's live show in NYC. Foxygen opens for Unknown Mortal Orchestra at The Bowery Ballroom next Thursday and then returns for headlining shows at The Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge in May. Tonight at 8pm, enjoy the ride of the album, right here on FUV.
