Foxygen “…And Star Power” review: A scatter-brained double LP

Foxygen's Jonathan Rado and Sam France could have easily borrowed the Arctic Monkeys album title “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” for their follow-up to the concise indie-psych of “We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic.” Apart from the side A of the double LP’s first disc, little about the Foxygen we met on their debut is recognizable on “…And Star Power.” That’s probably due to the album’s concept, which has a punk band from outer space taking over the band just after that divide on disc one until just before the end of disc two.
