LOVE LOVE LOVE FOR FOXYGEN

“It’s one thing to give your band and your album a silly name, and to play dress-up with rock history while tweaking the formula. It’s another thing entirely to mean it; the more time you spend with Ambassadors, the more clearly that commitment and joy comes through.”PITCHFORK, named BEST NEW MUSIC

“Foxygen’s second album is a cheerful retro orgy in which the Stones get down with the Velvets, while Marc Bolan lies down with Prince (Oh Yeah), with the Cramps, looking on.” THE GUARDIAN

“Foxygen wins.”PASTE

“Triumphantly filtering the hallucinogenic sensibilities of yesteryear through the ADD tendencies of today.” - BUST

“It’s as stylistically diverse, maddening and confident as the Take The Kids Off Broadway EP, yet feels ready to enter the primetime — a band confident that their set of skills will be accepted, or at least tolerated.”Aquarium Drunkard

“With Foxygen, who needs acid?”MOJO
