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
