Behold the mighty Foxygen. These kids rule. The pic above is from when they came and played live on my East Village Radio show in early 2012.
Jagjaguwar signed them up in the meantime and officially issued their amazing self-made LP, Take the Kids Off Broadway, and the world sang their praises in unison! What we have below is a video for the song, “San Francisco”, from Foxygen’s new album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic, out January 22nd on Jag. So let’s just stop talking and enjoy this very pleasurable song and video…
I love MMOSS. And I love their new Only Children album. Put it on my Best of 2012 list. Check out this great new vid for “Hands.” And keep on the lookout for the upcoming MMOSS/Quilt split 10″ on BBiB Records in March!

I do believe you’ve heard you some Tame Impala before as these dudes are getting huge. But it’s for good reason, for once! A little justice for great music. Take a look & listen to their trippy new one for “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” (from the new Lonerism album)…
The mighty Eternal Tapestry have another fantastic album coming out November 13th, care of Thrill Jockey, called A World Out Of Time. I’ve been listening to it for the past week or so and loving it. It might be my favorite from them yet. Full cosmic Atman!
Take a taste…
And methinks you should pre-order the vinyl now and get a bonus CDr called Prometheus Rising thrown in for good measure!
Some details about the bonus CDr :
“Prometheus Rising is a CD-R that plays like a full album. Clocking in at 42 minutes, the six tracks span the full extent of Eternal Tapestry’s existence. The disc opens with “The Prowler” – a set standard that the band has been playing live for years, previously unavailable. Title track “Prometheus Rising” is purposeful and driven as it leads into “Bridge Over an Abyss” – a psychedelic, ominous cosmic chasm of loose, foreboding darkness. The disc closes with live track “Blots and Blurs,” an epic burner of a track, crescendoing over the course of 13 minutes in impressive fashion.”
Dig this vid for “Apocalypse Troll” from A World Out Of Time and see if you recognize a riff:
“A World Out of Time, Portland quintet Eternal Tapestry’s second full-length of 2012, is a new kind of album for the band. As opposed to previous efforts, which were culled from many hours of recordings, it was recorded as a whole. The resulting record, while not restricted to the four minute song, has the focus and the flow that only music conceived as a narrative can. Taking inspiration from groups like Faust and Algarnas Tradgard, the album unfolds as a collage, the most salient elements of their sound sewn into a seamless patchwork. In the process, the group has constructed an incredibly dynamic album, juxtaposing expansive improvised sections with their most deliberate material yet.”

These guys are fuckin’ phenomenal. Therefore take 12 minutes or so to watch the great short doc on Mount Carmel via Red Bull Soundstage…
Evan Caminiti of Barn Owl has a new solo album, Dreamless Sleep, coming out next week on Thrill Jockey. As the day got darker with rain, I melted into the soft beautiful ambience of the sounds and visions of “Absteigend.”
Sit back and relax and dig the ebb and hiss…
