Foxygen make magic as much as they make music, a phenomenon captured on their ferociously charismatic (and aptly titled) 2013 album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. Somehow, they'd come up with their own take on the Stones' Their Satanic Majesties Request, but via Os Mutantes and Nikki Sudden and Jacobites' take on Satanic Majesties. We Are… is one of those records that will weather as much examination as you wanna give it — sounds sweet on first listen, reveals ever more sophisticated iterations of quantum sweetness as you keep listening. And now Foxygen are teasing a positively acrobatic new double LP called …And Star Power, which promises Bowie-ian (or Eno-esque) levels of conceptual mind-warping. With real-deal visionary Gary Wilson opening. Get up front for that one, because Gary works best when you're close.
