Best news of the day? Foxygen’s “highly-entertaining live show” is coming to a city near you! Rado, Sam France and the gang are currently treating Europe to their wild array of fun. They return to the States next week to kick off dates with Of Montreal and continue touring in 2013 with labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Go ahead and check out all their shows HERE.

FOXYGEN CMJ ROUND UP

Perhaps you’ve already seen Rado and Sam France on the cover of NYC’s Deli Magazine. They were featured in Issue #32 – the CMJ edition. You can read & download the magazine HERE. They didn’t make the cover just for kicks – Foxygen took CMJ by storm and never once looked back. Proof’s in the video; watch Foxy perform “Make It Known” below. If one thing is for sure, they definitely didn’t go unnoticed. From the music to their style to their unwieldy live performances, Foxygen made lists on lists. Luckily, it’s just beginning. What it is – we’re not completely sure, but that’s okay. Sit back and enjoy the weird ride with the rest of us >> start with a new round of tour dates (find below). Read the rest of this entry »

Love at First Sight/Song: Foxygen & CMJ

Foxygen are in the midst of taking CMJ 2012 by storm and no one is safe from their rock’n'roll ways. Tuesday night they donned their floral prints and gave Aquarium Drunkard’s No Jacket Required Showcase a shakedown that would make any grandmother proud (at least Sam France’s – she was there). It was their first ever New York City performance and certainly one to be remembered. VICE‘s Chad DePasquale was amongst the crowd and he writes, “Shimmering organ solos and visceral spaz attacks from the front man. Deep, evil, baritone laughs and glass-shattering screeches. It was all there, and the band easily stole the night, maybe even the entire week.” Read his glowing review HERE.

Foxy continue the fun tonight for the Hype Machine / Sonos showcase at Brooklyn Bowl. “However, those recordings, as strikingly out-there as they are, gave me no indication of the wholly unique and consummate performance these kids give on stage,” shares VICE. It’s no lie – Foxygen are meant to be experienced in person. They’ll also play Deli NYC’s Mostly Psych Showcase at Pianos on October 19 and FUZZNYC at 59 Canal St. the following night. GO SEE THEM!

How exactly did Foxygen come to name their band? Village Voice has all the answers.

“Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, and Mick Jagger would be proud of him if not entirely annoyed.”- Pitchfork

“I thought Foxygen was the best thing I saw last night, a confident melange of late ’60s / early ’70s psych pop and glam that was exemplified by the closing number that seemed to merge “Under My Thumb” and “Suspicious Minds” into a new baby.” – Brooklyn Vegan

Foxygen Proclaim Themselves The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, Dates w/ Of Montreal

You’ve been asking, now here it is! Rock’n'roll babies, Foxygen, bring your their debut full-length, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. It’s the follow-up to their critically acclaimed mini-album released this past summer.

Produced by the lovely Richard Swift, the new album was recorded at his National Freedom studio earlier this year and done so in an act of intergalatic kindness. Foxygen tell us each song is a message of peace delivered from cosmic beings, who use Rado and France as their earthly messengers. Pitchfork premiered the first single, “Shuggie,” this morning >>> listen below!

The Foxygen fun doesn’t stop with the audio. These rock scientists are headed out on tour with Of Montreal and we couldn’t be more excited for the pairing! Before they join up with our Polyvinyl friends, they’ll head to New York City for dates at CMJ. See the full schedule below.
