The record label Jagjaguwar gets mad respect from me. Their killer lineup includes the likes of Bon Iver, Dinosaur Jr., Okkervil River, and many more. So, I was pretty confident that listening to Foxygen’s “Shuggie” would be a good experience.
Turns out it was even better than I had anticipated. Think a blend between Broken Bells and MGMT — clearly this duo of 22-year-olds are onto something here. The song will be on their debut album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, due for release early 2013.
While the album title may be a bit wordy, there’s nothing long-winded about this song. It hits all the right notes in all the right places with marvelous results.
