Jonathan Rado and Sam France formed Foxygen in 2005, while the two Californians were still in high school. From the beginning the duo have been influenced by the avant-garde and psychedelia, but they also have an affintiy for late 1960s/early 1970s classic rock and songcraft. Foxygen's sprawling 2014 album, ...And Star Power, contained some nice Todd Rundgrenesque tracks, but also found the band indulging their experimental side a bit too much. For their latest release, Hang, Rado and France are still eccentric and experimental, but much more focused. Foxygen's baroque pop/indie rock songs are backed by a 40-piece orchestra, and the record features like-minded collaborators like Matthew E. White and The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd.
