ALBUM & VIDEO RELEASE // Foxygen Shares New Video For “Coulda Been My Love” Off “…And Star Power”, Out Today Via Jagjaguwar




Foxygen celebrate today’s release of the oh so wild ride that is … And Star Power by sharing the new video for second single, “Coulda Been My Love.” Aptly described by Pitchfork, “Foxygen have become increasingly assured and accomplished songwriters, outfitting standouts like ‘Coulda Been My Love’ . . . not just with silken soft-focus melodies and heavenly harmonies, but ever-evolving arrangements that steer the songs into surprising, splendorous new directions without losing the throughline.” Catch the video for “Coulda Been My Love,” directed by Grant Singer above or on the band’s Vevo / YouTube, and catch the nine-piece Star Power band thunder-and-lightning their way across North America and Europe until the end of November. You can find a full list of dates below.

“Sam and Rado have rock ‘n roll in their blood. It’s not something they aspire for, it’s who they are. I wanted the video to capture that.” – Grant Singer (Director)

Order …And Star Power via SC Distribution,Amazon, iTunes, or your local record store.

Praise for …And Star Power

“Everything about Foxygen’s new live show—which they revamped at the beginning of the summer—is as glamorous and aesthetically spectacular as they could have possibly made it. The same is true for their new album.” – Esquire

“Foxygen’s Sam France and Jonathan Rado know how to keep one foot on each side of the line separating barely contained genius from undisciplined indulgence.” – NPR Music’s “First Listen

“California psych-pop band Foxygen sound like a different era. Not a specific different era. Just some time period that is a blur of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, when people didn’t wear shoes and spent their days just spinning in circles with arms outstretched and eyes fixed directly at the sun.” – Vulture [Best New Songs of the Week]

Also out today, The New York Times’ T Magazine has reviewed …And Star Power. Read here.

LISTEN // Sharon Van Etten’s “Our Love” Gets Remix Treatment From The Juan MacLean [DFA Records]


sharon-hires-09a

Sharon Van Etten continues her North American tour next month starting on the 3rd playing the Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. To celebrate her return to the stage after a brief break from an already extensive 2014 world tour, Sharon shared a special remix by The Juan MacLean [DFA Records] with THE FADER yesterday. The Juan MacLean is the super-duo of DFA‘s John MacLean and LCD Soundsystem‘s Nancy Whang. Listen to it above or here on Soundcloud.

On the remix Sharon writes,
“I feel very lucky that Juan Maclean made the time to do a remix of my song. Being a huge fan of Air, Daft Punk, James Murphy, I was looking for something that had a bit of edge, but I wasn’t expecting this. He started by giving it a lot of space and let the vocals remain dark and bleak while incorporating both my samples and his own sound. I feel honored that he wanted to collaborate.”

If you missed it a few weeks ago, watch Sharon perform “Break Me” and “Tarifa” on Jimmy Kimmel Live here on Youtube and “Every Time the Sun Comes Up” on Late Show with David Letterman here on YouTube.

Pick up her new album via SC Distribution, Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.
