Foxygen is Number 11 on my list

We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is a super cool album by this band called Foxygen. They are number eleven. And that’s not so shabby if you ask me.

Ain’t that a really cool album cover? I think so. So I feel that this band sounds like the Kinks with Syd Barrett as lead singer. If Syd’s solo career was a success and he didn’t abuse LSD so much, his band might have sounded this way. There’s that hippie, summer love, Mamas and the Papas kind of groovy vibe going here on this record. Yet it’s sarcastic at times. Like in the song “San Francisco,” there’s this refrain, “I left my love in San Francisco (that’s okay, I was bored anyway).” Makes me laugh when I hear those lines.

Anyways, its two guys named Jonathan and Sam. They’re an American indie rock duo that formed in Westlake Village, California. Its actually quite refreshing listening to these guys. Bringing back some more psychedelic rock to 2013. Check out this video below. Good stuff man!
