Not sure how long this will stay up, but here’s a well-produced video of Foxygen’s full 45-minute set at Pitchfork Music Festival Paris:

UPDATE: Original video is dead, seems like this version is still working at least:

Video Of Full Set From Coachella Includes Two New Songs

The helpful folks at Coachella have posted a full video of Foxygen’s 39-minute set at the festival on Saturday (UPDATE: They’ve taken the original video down; here’s a re-post, but we’ll see how long it stays up):

Their updated touring group includes three backup signers and a two secondary guitarists, and updated song arrangements throughout (no doubt to take advantage of the new lineup).

The band played two new songs, one at the open of the set and the other starting at the 9:27 mark on the video above. Here’s the full setlist:

  1. How Can You Really New Song
  2. On Blue Mountain
  3. Coulda Been My New Song
  4. Shuggie
  5. We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic
  6. San Francisco
  7. Teenage Alien Blues

WXPN released a recording of Foxygen’s full 30-minute set from Non-COMM, which includes the first known recording of Teenage Alien Blues that we’ve seen this year. The full concert can be streamed at their website.

Here’s the setlist:

  2. On Blue Mountain

  4. We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic

Foxygen on the Take Away Show

Foxygen recently was featured on La Blogothèque’s Take Away Show series, recorded when they were in Paris in February earlier this year. The series features live impromptu performances in public settings, so you can imagine what Sam does to take advantage of the format.

They split the performance into two videos — the first is of On Blue Mountain:

And then that’s followed by a video of In The Darkness and No Destruction — don’t miss Sam getting busted for trying to steal a piece of fruit near the start:

The writeup is solid as well:

It’s been awhile since we filmed a group so well suited to a Take Away Show. A group whose presence alone suffices to shake the street, that provokes without seeming involved, that jumps around so much, makes a point of hanging out with everyone around them, and that mocks the fact of being on camera with a playful disdain. Overall, a band that can do all of that without fucking up their harmonies. A group that goes so far as to write the film we’re shooting while we’re shooting it.

One more note — around the 3 minute mark they discuss the fact that the answers in the Turnstyle Films interview from a few weeks ago were, as suspected, all lies.
