No Destruction


In 2013 We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic was featured in my annual best of. I had high hopes for Foxygen as a highly promising new discovery. Have they done much to live up to the hype since then? Not really; their third album wasn’t bad, but nowhere as impressive as this one. They did get airplay with a single that sounded more or less like generic indie pop, though the rest of the record was not without ambitious levels of weirdness. On the other hand, these guys have been actively doing their thing for a full decade, mostly to very little notice, so they can be forgiven for stepping into the boring old mainstream for a minute or two. Still holding strong as ones to watch.
