Foxygen follow up their critically acclaimed 2013 debut album We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic with an ambitious romp through the charred fields of Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and the cosmic vortex of Todd Rundgren’s A Wizard A True Star. Foxygen ...And Star Power is a cinematic auditory adventure for the speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees, and misfits made by Foxygen at Dream Star Studios in their Secret Haunted House with the UFOs flying around in the sky.
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, songs that morph into each other, weaving in and out of the head like UFO radio transmission skullkrush music. ADHD star power underground revolution. Soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom rompers. Process is the point. A kaleidoscoping view. Blasphemy even the gods smile. Rock and roll for the skull...
