Foxygen On World Cafe

Inspired by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Clash, among others, Foxygen's Sam France and Jonathan Rado channel their love of classic rock and psychedelia into a layered sound with sweetly airy vocals.

The California band released its first full-length studio album, Take the Kids Off Broadway, in July 2012. Returning to the studio shortly thereafter, Foxygen finished its second record, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, in just four weeks.

Foxygen has been selected as WXPN's "Artist To Watch" for January. Here, the band performs songs from its new album and talks about labeling its sound.
