Foxygen* – San Francisco | (NAT)

I have to give it up to fellow bloggers Far from Cyan for this discovery. The track is so fresh and infectious. It has been playing on a loop in my head for the past week or two.

Foxygen are a Californian duo who make 60’s influenced indie pop. They sound like they were meant for a different era. This is taken from their recently released We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic album which was released on the JAGAJGUWAR label.

The fact that the song is ostensibly about my favourite city in the world does it no harm but there is more to it than that. I love the retro, somewhat irreverent sound.

I left my love in San Francisco. 

That’s okay, I was bored anyway…

    Will have to have a looksey into these guys. Top comment on youtube is that it’s very Wes Anderson – which is dead right and in theory I love. That said, if the whole world was a Wes Anderson movie I’d shoot myself.

    So this seems superficially great – but it could go either way when I listen to their other stuff. Like our Wes. Thanks for the heads up.

    No problem, let me know what you turn up.

    The track is certainly infectious. Now whether that’s solely a good thing or not…
