Weekly Feature: Foxygen

Weekly Feature: Foxygen

Splitting their time between NYC and Olympia (apparently they live 6 months here, 6 months there), Foxygen is a band that's only devoted to its crazy musical intuition. Besides the insane mash up of influences that can almost all be traced back to the sound of the 70s (we hear early Roxy Music, early Bowie, Captain Beefheart, John Lennon, Motown...) the most astounding thing about their music is how it flows (in this regard, check out the streaming track). It flows like... a record from the 70s! This, after we spent 30+ years listening to new records produced with a click track (or directly with a drum machine), feels incredibly refreshing.

The band also possesses great songwriting chops, which definitely helped them snatch a 7.9 grade from Pitchfork - that's great, but if this is not "Best New Music" material, we have no idea what else can be. That is why their debut album "Take The Kids Off Broadway" was The Deli NYC's Record of the Month in May. - We featured Foxygen in print in our latest NYC issue, you can read Mike Levine's full interview here.
