Last Saturday night Zippy suggested I buy the new album by Foxygen, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, so I did, and I like it.
Zippy and Sporty saw the band live at the Treefort Music Fest in Boise last night. Their field report is:
The lead singer for Foxygen is quite the entertainer. Think Martin from Capsula meets Jim Morrison. They cranked up the reverb to 11 to start the show. Songs take on a more dramatic texture live. Although not what we expected, we loved it.
Here’s the video for “San Francisco”.
Foxygen is playing at The Crocodile in Seattle tonight. Go to the show! And while you’re in Belltown, take a walk across the street for a bite to eat at Pintxo. I highly recommend the Tosta de Boquerones.
Low released a new album produced by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco titled, The Invisible Way. I’ve listened to it a few times, and I must say I am quite impressed. I could not find any official videos for the new album on YouTube, so I putting up a live video of them performing “Plastic Cup” at Milano Shambala in Italy last month.
Low will be playing at The Crocodile in Seattle on Saturday, April 6th.
And for the final video in this Friday’s set, here’s Tom Waits narrating a very short film titled A Brief History of John Baldessari. Watch and Learn.
