NYC bands on the rise: Foxygen signs to Jagjaguwar

NYC bands on the rise: Foxygen signs to Jagjaguwar

Sometimes we get these press releases in the mail saying that a band we've never heard of just signed with a super cool label, and we look at each other (as if we were more than one) with a puzzled expression: "who the heck are these guys?". Today "these guys" are two zany guys involved in lo-fi psych-folk duo Foxygen, based 50% in Astoria, NYC and 50% in Olympia, WA, who recently signed to Jagjaguwar. Following a very non-chalant musical recipe which seems to phagocytize any musical influence every imagined since 1957, these guys' songs certainly don't lack in character. Think of it as a hipster, but also somewhat retro, version of They Might Be Giant. Fun!
