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

Sam Performs With Cane at Austin City Limits

Foxygen performed an abbreviated set at Austin City Limits, giving a glimpse of Sam as he continues recovering from his brutal leg injury from over the summer. Here’s a close up of Sam during Shuggie where you can see the cane that he is currently sporting:

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Foxygen festival appearance without an endless stream of social media updates questioning Sam’s sanity!

Foxygen live: Epitonic saki Session

This is a great find — Epitonic recorded a Foxygen show right before their LP was released, so this probably places the recording in December or early January. It’s standard songs from their set, but the audio quality is fantastic. Definitely one of the best live recordings of No Destruction that I’ve heard.

Stream or download the songs at the Epitonic website.

  1. In The Darkness
  2. Make It Known
  3. Shuggie
  4. San Francisco
  5. We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic
  6. No Destruction

From Justin Sinkovich, who did the recording:

I hope that everyone will get to witness is a Foxygen show like this one at our Epitonic saki Session right before We Are The 21st Century… was released. In doing my normal research before engineering a session, I listened to their 2012 EP Take The Kids Off Broadway, and found it to be enjoyable, but not great. Within a few minutes of Foxygen’s session set, I was immediately enamoured with the new LP material and the recklessness and playfulness of France in particular, and how he interacted with the crowd and performed. Face to face with our audience in more of a loft or basement style setting, you can hear by the six tracks here are performed with a sense of spirited chaos mixed with an undeniable eccentric ear for pop. Foxygen’s set with us was a ton of fun, and real treasure for the audience at saki and with these six excellent renditions of some of their best songs, four from the new album, a track from last year’s EP, and the “Shuggie” single.
