If you haven’t heard of Foxygen, you’re in for a 21st century treat!
The newest babes in musicland, Sam France and Jonathan Rado (a mere 22 years old apiece) have come in swinging some really groovy tunes with their promising album “We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic”. These mini masters are standing on the cutting edge of indie folk rock with a dreamy, Kinks-influenced California sound that’s been accurately accused of “…slamming together the archetypal flower children of the 60s and the archetypal ADHD vapidity of our recent generations.”
Following a short European tour, Foxygen will kick off their 2013 album release in the states in the Great American Music Hall in homage to their track “San Francisco”. Check out this video, then click here to listen to the entire album!

Now you’ve got the recipe for a truly great listening experience.
So, continuing on from last week’s playlist, here are five more amazing songs that still have me singing loudly and dancing wildly!
There you have it, my forever favorites of 2012. I can’t wait to see what 2013 has to offer my eager ears!
What were some of your twenty-twelve standouts, music lovers?
Let’s be honest, one of the best parts about each year coming to a close is sitting down to recall all of the amazing music from throughout the year. Whether discovering brand new artists or falling more in love with fresh tracks from old favorites, we all find standouts; those songs that will stick with you long after the year is over. I’ve put together a list of songs that I still can’t get enough of… my top five of 2012!
“Five Seconds” – Twin Shadow
This song combines a few of my favorite things: 80′s synth, catchy lyrics, and the urge to dance the night away! You, too? Okay then, get down with your bad self!
“Youth Without Youth” – Metric
Hard-hitting and always blatantly honest, Metric hits the jackpot with this stellar track. Emily Haines is a rock ‘n’ roll goddess, and I pretty much want to be her when I grow up. No lie.
“Fineshrine” – Purity Ring
Purity Ring is, without a doubt, one of my favorite newcomers from this year. Both dreamy and delightful, this sweet single is one that I’m sure I’ve played one hundred times too many. But who’s really counting?
“It’s Time” – Imagine Dragons
An anthem of sorts, for all us misfits, “It’s Time” is sure to give you a heaping helping of the warm fuzzies. Turn it on, turn it up, and take over the world! Figuratively speaking.
“Feel So Close” – Calvin Harris
I’m a sucker for a catchy love song, especially when it’s sung by Calvin Harris (Swoon, much?). This song stood out amongst hundreds and it still makes my heart go pitter patter!
And as it turns out, I couldn’t choose just five awesome songs from 2012, so stay tuned for part two…!
It’s hard to think that some of the greatest songs of 2012 will one day be considered throwbacks and our future children will be embarrassed that we ever sang along to, “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” But before they become throwbacks, let’s think about how much we loved, overplayed and annoyed each other with the most viral songs of 2012.
Even though you said you hated them, we know you secretly loved them. Don’t be ashamed, just sing along.
