Foxygen @ BVCMJ 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Foxygen

Foxygen, who were one of the breakout bands at CMJ this year, will release We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic on January 22 via Jagjaguwar records. You can pre-order the album now with a few different "bundle" options. We've got the premiere of video for "Shuggie," which is the album's first single. The black-and-white clip, directed by Ulysses///Onasis, features a lot of people running while carrying giant boxes. Some other stuff happens too, with a very messy ending, but we don't want to spoil it for you, as you can watch it below. The song itself is typical of Foxygen's cross-polination pop approach, that is a little Elton John and a little Jim Morrison, among other things.

Meanwhile, Foxygen are taking their highly-entertaining live show on the road, including some December shows with Of Montreal on their tour which hits NYC on December 11 at Webster Hall. Tickets are still available. Then in 2013, they'll go out with Jagjaguwar labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra (but not at their NYC show) for a tour that will take them from the South across the bottom of America and then a trip up the West Coast.

A list of all upcoming dates and the "Shuggie" video, below...

Foxygen kicks ass

rule #1: don't name your band Foxygen.

Foxgen is awoken with a phone call at 2 AM, given a cup of tea and some rice, and then go on stage and play a brand new setlist for 36 hours straight.

I really like this band but I think they are going to blow up and I am going to hate them. Cause that's how we do it.

I know that when a band gets that call at 2 AM, I want it to be Foxygen.
