I love this album from Foxygen. Thanks to Darryl Rodway from Urbnet for the recommendation.

Take a trip into the psychedelic world of Foxygen’s January 2013 release We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic.

In my last post I recommended Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era, artists who create hip hop entirely with a 1990’s boom bap aesthetic. In this case Foxygen invokes the sounds and flavour of several classic era’s of rock music. Even though they borrow heavily from the past these artist still manage to sound fresh.

The first thing I noticed listening to We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic was that I was in familiar territory. Next I noticed the beauty, charm, humor, complexity, musicality and craftsmanship of this work.

I really like Foxygen in very much the same way I like 1960’s revivalists the Brian Jonestown Massacre or to a lesser extent Redd Kross.

Check the video for San Francisco from Foxygen’s We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic.
