Continuing to bring Sonoma County great music at a reduced price (zilch), Lagunitas will be hosting Foxygen on August 4th in their ongoing summer concert series, Live at Lagunitas. The tandem of Sam France and Jonathan Rado have been hard working throughout their career and that work ethic made, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic a reality. The album bubbles with psychedelic experimentation and lush vocals that are reminiscent of California's musical past. The sound-scape of this record drips in a soft warmth. It also touches on some elements of pop music with a unique edginess. Some of their songs bend between Belle and Sebastian ("San Francisco") and Lou Reed ("No Destruction"). Other tracks that I'm drawn to on 21st Century are "Shuggie" and "Oh Yeah." Maybe you'll be there too. Enjoy.
