Foxygen – “24 Hour Lover Man”

Foxygen’s “Farewell Tour” is currently underway, though it’s still not clear if that means Foxygen are breaking up or if it’s just the end of their “…And Star Power” incarnation. Either way, the band has just shared a truly bizarre new song. “24 Hour Lover Man” is a sloppy, lo-fi mess that samples Jimi Hendrix’… More »

Foxygen Announce Farewell Tour

It looks like Foxygen are about to call it a day. The Californian psych-poppers have only been in the public eye for a couple of years, but they’ve been together since 2005, and their run in the spotlight has been marked by internal drama. Today, they’ve announced what they’re calling a “Farwell Tour,” a five-month… More »

Watch Foxygen Impress The Hell Out Of David Letterman

Ask Future Islands: When you can get a real reaction out of David Letterman, a jaded and sarcastic old motherfucker who’s seen everything, that’s something you can hang your hat on. Whatever happens for the rest of their careers, the members of Foxygen can say that they did that. Last night, the L.A. psych-poppers made… More »

Photos: Beach Goth 3 Fest Feat. Atlas Sound, Foxygen, DIIV, Alice Glass, & More

Orange County’s eclectic Beach Goth festival, organized by surf-rock weirdos the Growlers, returned for its third year on Saturday. The fest included a diverse lineup, some wandering Oompa Loompas, and — for some reason — an incredibly awkward Pauly Shore on hosting duty, who somehow managed to piss off Alice Glass enough that she reportedly… More »

Watch Foxygen’s Wild Performance On A Chicago Morning News Show

Foxygen gave a wild performance on the WGN Morning News show in Chicago yesterday. They played …And Star Power track “Brooklyn Police Station.” Frontman Sam France did a lot of jumping around and some guttural screaming and was joined by three backup dancers who joined in on the fun too.

Foxygen – “Coulda Been My Love” Video

Today, Foxygen release …And Star Power, their messy, ambitious sprawl of a new album. And they’ve also chosen this morning to share their video for the seductively shambling album track “Coulda Been My Love.” Grant Singer, who worked with the band on their deeply entertaining “How Can You Really” video, returned to direct this one.

Foxygen – “Cosmic Vibrations”

Next month, Californian psych-rock sprites Foxygen return with their new album …And Star Power. First single “How Can You Really” didn’t exactly announce any grand departures from the band’s old sound, and neither did any of the new songs that the band has been playing live lately. But “Cosmic Vibrations,” the band’s new single, suggest… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

There was a lot of nudity and violence and crisp, vivid black-and-white in this week’s music videos, but most of the videos that leaned heavily on those tropes didn’t make it onto this week’s countdown. The videos that did the best this week relied on their performers’ charisma, and they burst with joy and movement… More »
