Last Wednesday night Foxygen tour through Music Hall of Williamsburg in support of their new album …And Star Power, which was released this week via Jagjaguwar.

This version of Foxygen is a totally different one than the one that broke out in CMJ 2012. Nowadays they pack a whopping total of nine people on stage, including three female singers/dancers, as well as a few extra guitarists (With Jonathan Rado mostly behind keys now). These days singer Sam France sports long blonde hair, which seems to trail behind him as he frantically runs around the stage jumping all around seemingly never keeping still. He kept this pace from the opening bit of “How Can You Really” all the way through to to the finishing touch of “Teenage Alien Blues.”

Foxygen

Next week Foxygen will return with their new epic 24-tack 84-minute album …And Star Power. It’s an epic release, and one that will surely bring thrilling performances to their current U.S. tour.

Tomorrow night they make their return New York to play a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. It’s the first night of two-night celebration, which also brings them to Webster Hall on Thursday night.

I’m excited to see what Foxygen’s new revamped lineup and direction means for their live show, something that will undoubtly brings feelings of the past and present to one delightful whole.

Tickets are sold out for MHOW tomorrow (there’s always stubhub) but Webster Hall is still on sale.

Foxygen - And Star Power

Foxygen had a wild 2013, one that most people will remember for all the drama that the band endured. Unfortunately all that seemed to overshadow the fact that they released We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, an album that landed on my best albums of 2013 list.

I assumed it would be a while before we heard new music from the guys, but that’s far from the case. They’ve announced that they got a new album on the way, and it’s an epic. It’s called …And Star Power and features 24-tracks, running at a lengthy 82-minutes. Wow.

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

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.
