The Focused Energy of Foxygen Captures New Album … And Star Power Live

Foxygen' s lead singer Sam France broke at least one mic stand with his maniacal dancing on stage at World Cafe live during the performance captured in our session today. When I asked him, he said it happens most nights. You might even hear it in today's live performance. The neo-psychedelic band Foxygen is the duo of Jonathan Rado and Sam France. The prolific band released their debut in 2012, put out We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic in 2013, and have just now released their third disc, a double album, called ...And Star Power. We will talk with the duo and listen to this performance in front of an audience at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
