Slow Trip with Foxygen
I love to love and hate Foxygen. Their first LP was remarkable, so remarkable that when they brought their live debacle of a show to Austin that I had to force myself to walk out (not just go to the bar; I straight up walked out). All that nonsense aside, I’m still quite fascinated with their musicianship. Just listen to this song; it opens with a carnival-esque freak show before folding into this really simple piece of melodic neo-folk. There’s two different vocalists, which shouldn’t surprise since the group is taking 9 people on the road as their band (please rehearse!). Even if ‘I heard they suck live,’ they’re music is still captivating…look for more of it on October 14th when …and Star Power is released by Jagjaguwar.
