FULL ALBUM STREAM


rating: i don't wanna waste too many words. what i can say is, that foxygen's new album is for sure one of the highlights in early 2013. it combines psychedelic with the best elements of glam, rock, funk and pop. the title track is (at least to me) the bestest glam rock song ever., while "shuggie" has one of the sweetest refrains since mgmt's "brian eno". listening to "we are the 21st century ambassadors of peace and magic" is like watching "velvet goldmine" on lsd! fantastic stuff! my personal highlights are "san francisco", "shuggie" and the title track.
10/10 (must have!!!) (n.e.)
