SiriusXMU has been playing a great song by Foxygen.  It led me to check out some of their other material, and it's very hit and miss.  They're playing a show near me pretty soon and reading the above posts, it sounds like their shows are up and down too.
'

I wouldn't miss them if they came by my town.  Even though their set was all over the place when I saw them at Forecastle; they were one of my favorite shows from 2013.  Sam France is completely unpredictable on stage.  We Are The 21st Ambassadors of Peace and Magic is solid throughout.  On Blue Mountain, Shuggie, No Destruction, and San Francisco being some of their best.
I wonder why we listen to poets when nobody gives a fuck

Here's some of our writers' views on Foxygen's new album. I would be interested in hearing other people's take.

I really like Foxygen. They have an interesting sound that you to don't hear too often nowadays. in defense of the negative comments… i think foxygen really has an opportunity to grow, and that's what they're doing. you have to experiment and mess up in order to grow into a badass band.

Psyched they're coming to Iowa City for the Mission Creek Fest this spring. You never know what you're going to get. Also, Father John Misty and Diamond Rugs!

National TV debut on Letterman this past week.

Foxygen: "How Can You Really" - David Letterman

For anyone interested, one of my favorite "albums" from Sam France and Jonathan Rado, aka Foxygen.  This was made in high school, when they were around 15 years old.  It was available last year as a free download.  Here's a download link from my Mediafire account:

That was really good, I'm still having a hard time getting behind the vocals.  But i'm usually late to the party!
Can you keep it simple? Can you let the snare crack? Can you let it move without holding back?

Tonight, I'm revisiting an exceptional piece of music. In 2006 and 2007, two 15 year old friends, Jonathan Rado and Sam France, string 30+ short tracks into a one-hour psychedelic journey. They called themselves Foxygen. Check it out.
