Foxygen Biography & News
The Los Angeles-based songwriting duo of Sam France and Jonathan Rado became something more when they combined their raw talent of guitar/keyboards/vocals to form Foxygen.
Following their formation in 2005, Foxygen played everything from 60s psychedelia to avant-garde. They also released a slew of EPs all the way up through 2011, when producer Richard Swift got his hands on a disc called "Take The Kids Off Broadway." The end result was that the duo later signed to Jagjaguwar Records, and their first album was released on July 24, 2012.
On January 22, 2013, Jagjaguwar released Foxygen's second album, "We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic." It was produced by Swift and recorded at his National Freedom studio. The first single, "Shuggie," was released on October 4, 2012. By March 2013, Foxygen had been named one of Fuse TV's "must-see" artists at SXSW, and a month later they made the decision to release their original 1997 album "Jurrassic Exxplosion Phillipic" to the public.
Fans will tell you that you should see a Foxygen live show based on reputation alone. Why is that, you ask? Because this duo is known for it's rather unhinged live shows (at many of them you might catch France bashing himself in the face with a microphone, climbing the stage equipment and interacting with the crowd). In fact, he fell off the stage during the first song of a show in Minneapolis in July 2013, and was later carted off by emergency services with a broken leg.
