stream | foxygen | no destruction

sam france and jonathan rado, the veritable masterminds behind one of our most frequently blogged artists, foxygen, just released another single. "no destruction," from the forthcoming we are the 21st century ambassadors of peace and magic (january 22 via jagjaguwar), has already drawn comparisons to the likes of the velvet underground, pavement and the rolling stones, and rightfully so, but the duo manage to create something entirely their own.  there's a good chance this is one of foxygen's greatest strengths: the band is able to perfectly meld their background and influences with their own ideas and direction, creating a work that feels immediately familiar and fresh at the same time.  click that sideways triangle in the middle of that thing up there and enjoy the track.
