Foxygen #8 on Paste Magazine’s Best Acts of SXSW List

Missed this from a few days ago — Paste Magazine ranked Foxygen #8 on their post-SXSW best-of list:

8. Foxygen – The Stage on Sixth
Say whatever you will about Foxygen’s mid-week collapse and subsequent cancelation of their remaining showcases. When we caught the group at our Wednesday day party, they were in top form, with frontman Sam France positively wailing through tracks off their stunning We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic in a way that makes us inclined to believe that lofty title. France apologized to fans for a lack of intensity, but—as we said in our initial recap of the set—if this is the band running on empty, we can’t wait to see what they can do with a full tank.—Bonnie Stiernberg
