Foxygen & UMO will bring the psych-indie-rock equation to LA
The Echoplex – Los Angeles, CA
Unknown Mortal Orchestra had recently signed onto the Jagjaguwar label and are currently tag-teaming with new labelmates, Foxygen. By jumping onto Jagjaguwar, they’ve coupled their induction with a forthcoming release of their sophomore album, II, due out in a few months. Along with Foxygen, they’ll tour the country before they jet over to Europe to spread the gospel of psychedelic indie-rock influx that has come as a relatively new development within the past few years when the “thing” can be designated to have cycled back “in” in conjunction with electronic production to complement wandering melodies. Without a doubt they’ll gravitate to the homestead of the Echoplex for a night of Check Yo Ponytail 2 with a taste of psych-pop and up-tempo afro-beat to garnish the headliners; Wampire and Gothic Tropic. They’ll be here in a few days but if you can’t catch them in LA, go to Santa Ana or better yet, go about having a shotgun roadtrip to the Bay if you’re not one to puss out on a long drive.

And you really need to check out Foxygen. If your ear coincides with the interests of my ear (things that don’t sound like shit), you’ll certainly develop a repeat listen or two or several to these SoCal locals:
You can find a list of dates of their tour here but if you wanna keep it local and I do mean California-local, here are the deets:
Should be a grand night!
