UMO/Foxygen at Austin's Mohawk (more by Tim Griffin)

Foxygen

Jagjaguwar labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Foxygen are about two weeks into their tour together that will swing into NYC on Thursday (2/28) for a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom with fellow tourmates Wampire. All three bands hit Texas' state capital last week and BV Austin's Tim Griffin was there and got some great shots (as you can see above) and you can check out more of his pics HERE.

Foxygen will play NYC again at Knitting Factory on May 14 and Mercury Lounge on May 15. Both shows are sold out.

Yesterday (2/25) was an off night for the tour and Unknown Mortal Orchestra took advantage of that by making their television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing "So Good At Being In Trouble." You can watch that clip below.

11:51, i was just going to make a plea to stop the mash-up of two names that work together (japandriods, japanther, vancougar, foxygen, etc.).

this band is actually extremely epic, and they're going to be one of the big names of rock alongside tame impala and mgmt in the future, so don't go putting them down too quickly. The music is actually the studio project of the frontman, Ruban Nielson. The band is just there to play his tunes live. The dude is a real genius of marrying melodies to lyrics, his songs manage to squeeze so much sentiment and imagery out of the simplest lyrics. I'm convinced that he's writing some of the best music out there right now, before you go and rashly judge UMO you should give their albums a good listen, I think you'll really dig them. And oh, I thought the name was kind of lame at first too, but as I began to pick up on the band's whole personality/theme/persona/etc it began to make a little more sense, and now I think it's pretty dope.
