You know him as half of the Foxygen force. Now Jonathan Rado is stepping out with his first solo record. Titled Law and Order, the album will be available on Woodsist come September 3. Get the first (and much anticipated) listen with the track “Faces,” featuring White Fence’s Tim Presley.
Rado and the rest of Foxygen will play a couple of shows this summer. You can check out all their upcoming dates HERE.
Ole Foxygen are at it again. Here we are with a new [old] video for their song “No Destruction.” Why it’s a modern day Western! It’s an ode to adolescence! But really, you’re looking at a mix of newly filmed video plus a bit of footage from Foxy’s high school days; clips from The Legend of Colonel Bedlum and the Salty Biscuits (2005), Metronome (2007), Here’s Another One, Jon! (2008), The Buffalo Son (2009), and more included! The video was directed by Sam and Rado’s childhood friend Bryan Felber. WATCH ABOVE!
Foxygen, oh Foxygen. They’re always up to something. If you haven’t managed to watch their Takeaway show, do so now. The folks behind La Blogotheque met with the Foxy gang in Paris this past February to film a live, moving performance of “No Destruction,” “On Blue Mountain” and “In The Darkness.” Watch above and check out the entire shoot HERE.
Also coming in today is a brand new 7″, complete with Richard Swift artwork (pictured above), for your purchasing pleasure. You’ll find an a-side of “No Destruction,” backed with “Where’s the Money.” Pre-order the single at SC Distribution.
As always, we’ve got a round of tour dates for you. Foxygen hit the road this summer, playing a million different music festivals. You’ll find all the dates HERE.
