The indie psych duo Foxygen (Jonathan Rado and Sam France) is giving listeners a fortnight to stream their new album “…And Star Power” on NPR’s “First Listen” and CBC Music’s “First Play.” The clock started ticking Sept. 28, but there’s still time.
Foxygen has enlisted guests like Wayne Coyne, Bleached, Kevin Barnes (Of Montreal) and Tim Presley of White Fence for the new album. The Star Power band, Rado and France, along with a seven-piece band, fill out the 70s sound. For first-time listeners, check out the 60s/London sound of Foxygen’s “How Can You Really.”
Foxygen is out on a world tour with psychedelic experimentalists and noise rockers Dub Thompson. They’ll be in Brooklyn tonight at the Music Hall.
Anything can happen at a Foxygen show; hopefully France won’t break another leg.
“…. And Star Power” is out Oct. 14 on Jagjagjuwar Records.
