Part Indie Pop, part 60′s revivalism, Foxygen’s We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic has been demanding the attention of my iPod lately, proving time and time again to be a chill tunes go-to. Some may compare the duo to MGMT for lack of a better comparison, but Foxygen has more of a classic sound, I feel, as opposed to sampling from or expanding upon the 60′s and 70′s. It’s got an old school vibe that kind of transports you to another decade, similar to a Tame Impala or Radio Moscow record.
The Foxygen disc referenced above is a 2013 release and the second of two LPs from the California duo, Jonathan Rado and Sam France. Check out some cuts below:
