Foxygen - We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic

January 22, 2013 | Jagjaguwar | Buy Here

Last October Foxygen delivered what would come to be my favorite performance of CMJ 2012. The band played in a tiny Chinese restaurant located on Canal Street and left quite the impression. Their set was an exuberant mix of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Bowie, that exploded into the night and left me wholeheartedly impressed. Last year they released the solid Take The Kids Off Broadway EP, which is an excellent release on its own, but their debut album We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic is the fully formed next step that should propel these guys to the next level.

[music video]: Foxygen – San Francisco

Foxygen - San Francisco

Personally, Foxygen are one of the best things going right now. One listen to their single “San Francisco” will explain why. It has a timeless wistful nature about it that gives you a feeling of nostalgia as the catchy chorus kicks in.

Today they released the music video for “San Francisco” and it’s a good one. Very Wes Anderson like, but it ellegantly captures the feel of the song, so a job well done to the director

It’s taken from their debut album We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic, whichcomes out January 22 via Jagjaguwar.

[music video]: Foxygen – Shuggie

By Will Oliver, November 29th 2012

After a stunning CMJ showing, Foxygen are one of my favorite new acts. I’m very excited to see what their debut album We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic will bring to us when it comes out next January 22 via Jagjaguwar.

The band are definitely eccentric, and the video for the album’s first single “Shuggie” definitely doesn’t argue against that as it shows various people bonding and struggling with a strange black box.

It was directed by Ulysses///Onasis, and can be found below.

[CMJ]: Foxygen @ Fuzz NYC (October 20, 2012)

By Will Oliver, October 24th 2012 — with 4 comments



Foxygen were another member of the bands receiving gracious buzz at CMJ this year, and they totally deserved it. From the minute they started playing I knew they were something special. They rocked it hard, sounding almost like a new Rolling Stones/The Kinks. There was a gritty, gutsy, punch to the songs that creating quite a stir of energy at Fuzz NYC, which is really a small Chinese reasturant that had karaoke videos running in the background.

Not that this mattered, because I’m pretty sure these guys would rock the shit out of any venue that you threw them in. They went from rocking out to freakish-experimental rockouts in the Ariel Pink area. They were a young energetic bunch that I can safely call one of my favorite new bands. Can’t wait until they release their debut full-length, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. It’s gonna be a good one.

Foxygen – Shuggie

By Will Oliver, October 4th 2012

Foxygen’s “Shuggie” is a soulful jam that sounds like it’s taken from a completely distant era. It’s a modern take on throwback am radio rock that artist like Ariel Pink have recently mastered. You can also here some Bowie and Velvet Underground in there.

There are just good groovy vibes spinning throughout the entire duration of “Shuggie”. Lets hope the same can been said about their debut album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. It comes out January 22 via Jagjaguwar.

They will be appearing at CMJ, with some dates announced, and more on the way. Find them below.
