Foxygen.

Foxygen.

Psychedelic. Rolling Stones-ish. Maybe a little Velvet Underground in there with a splash of Syd Barrett. The point is not to pigeon hole a band like this that has an intentionally retro sound, but to think curious thoughts about our generation. Why is it that 20 and 30 year olds are now reaching for those sounds from 40 or 50 years ago? What is missing in our culture today that leads us to create in this way?  I think their sound is actually incredible though their videos are a bit over the top. (My wife disagrees).

Enough said. The coolest thing about them is that their whole album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic is on YouTube. Enjoy.
