Video: Foxygen – San Francisco

At last fall’s installment of the annual CMJ Music Marathon, one of the band’s that seemingly played every venue around town, and generated a healthy dose of buzz was the Los Angeles-band act Foxygen. The band brought a vintage brand of Nuggets-era influenced garage rock to their 2012 debut album, Take the Kids Off Broadway, sounding like an acid-drenched Rolling Stones record. Next Tuesday, Foxygen will release their highly anticipated sophomore studio effort We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic via Jagjaguwar and have dropped the music video for the album’s lead single San Francisco.

 

Judging from the Wes Anderson-inspired clip, the band has shifted direction a bit embracing the psychedelic sounds of early Pink Floyd and The Kinks, as well as the California sunshine pop of the early 1960’s. Let’s check it out…
