KEXP Posts Audio From July 30 Studio Appearance. First Recording of “Hang”?

KEXP has posted the audio from Foxygen’s July 30 appearance in studio. The 18-minute session only appears to be available in streaming Windows Media, but they’ll likely post the video to their YouTube page in the next few days as well. (Update: watch it here)

Song list is below — this is the highest quality recording yet of their new material (outside of the studio version of How Can You Really that’s been released), and I’m also pretty sure it’s the first recording of Hang to go around:

  • How Can You Really
  • Coulda Been My Love
  • Cannibal Holocaust
  • Hang

More content from the Jagjaguwar release:

From the band –
Foxygen have joined Star Power. It is a punk band, and you can be in it, too. Star Power is the radio station that you can hear only if you believe. A gaggle of guest stars. Roman-numeraled musical suites. Vocals recorded on a shoddy tape machine at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Chateau Marmont. A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom rompers. A cinematic auditory adventure for speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees and misfits. We’re all stars of the scene.

Ladies & Gentleman, Foxygen is back with their third release …And Star Power, out Oct. 14th (13th in Europe) via Jagjaguwar. The followup to We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is a 24-song epic journey that picks up right where members Sam France and Jonathan Rado left off. Catch the video for the debut single “How Can You Really“, starring France as he harnesses the power of rock-gods before him. Bonus points for those who spot the cameos from members of Gardens & Villa and Dub Thompson, the latter supporting Foxygen on their upcoming North American tour. Directed by Grant Singer, watch the video above or on Youtube / Vevo.

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
