Foxygen is an American indie rock duo formed 2005 in Westlake Village, California, by multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Rado and vocalist Sam France. Rado and France started their band in high school when both were fourteen. The played experimental music, influenced by psychedelia and avant-garde and their early efforts won them first place in Agoura High School's Battle of the Bands. The group was later signed to Jagjaguwar Records and their first studio album, Take the Kids Off Broadway, was released in July 2012. The following year saw the release of their breakthrough second album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. The album, along with the accompanying single "Shuggie" established the band as one of the hottest up and coming acts in the US. Critics have described the band as Rolling Stones and Tod Rundgren inspired psych-rock which is "indulgent, unhinged, sprawling, funny and sometimes spookily great". To-date they have released seven studio albums, standouts include Take the Kids Off Broadway, We are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic and Hang.
