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.
