Foxygen’s Debut Album

Best. Band Name. Ever! From their debut album Take the Kids Off Broadway, this Los Angeles duo have taken their parents’ (grandparents’?) record collections and run them through a Bass-o-Matic to create a five-minute indie-rock opera, and endless hours of Name That Influence fun. If you like the Stones, The Velvet Underground, The Doors, or anything – literally: anything – else, you’ll probably like at least 10 or 12 seconds of this song. (Although, truth be told, with a name like that, I expected them to sound a little more like Sweet.)
