Amoeba Review

01/21/2013

Foxygen inject some soulfulness and classic-rock worship into the breathy indie-pop genre on We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. Opener “In the Darkness” is brief, only two minutes, and manages to seriously vibe on Sgt. Peppers, with its regal horns, sampled cheers and general fanfare. By the next track, they’ve moved on to loopy Kinks-style pop that allows itself to meander sweetly for nearly six minutes while keeping tethered to a simple-but-sure arrangement and fun lyrics “there’s no need to be an asshole/you’re not in Brooklyn anymore.” It’s sort of shocking how revelatory Foxygen’s slow-burning soulfulness and willingness to openly ref The Rolling Stones sounds in 2013. More so than shocking, it sounds fucking great.
