FunFunFun Fest Artist: Foxygen

Written by on November 5, 2014

“We just can’t stop playing the scruffy psych-rock duo’s Rolling Stones-obsessed album with the appropriately exuberant title We Are the 21st Century  Ambassadors of Peace & Magic.” – Entertainment Weekly

Foxygen is an indie rock band from Westlake Village. California. They formed in 2005 by band members Sam France and Jonathan Rado. Their sound is very psychedelic and chill, very much a blast from the past, era of the 1960’s. Fans of MGMT and Tame Impala will eat this band up. They are on Jagjaguwar’s record label and the first studio album they released was titled Take The Kids Off Broadway.

Not even one year late, in 2013, the second studio album was released entitled We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. They are not making their fans wait at all as the new album …And Star Power came out earlier this year.

They have been on tour around the U.S. and were named one of the 30 bands to see at SXSW by Fuse.

Foxygen will be performing at FunFunFun Fest Sunday November 9th on the Orange Stage.

Check out their sweet tunes!
