24 Hour Lover Man
Ever wondered what Foxygen doing a Death Grips song would sound like? “24 Hour Lover Man” might just be your answer. A crunchy sample of Jimi Hendrix‘s “Manic Depression” sets the tone as Sam France and Jonathan Rado exchange rough and tumble verses that aren’t so much tongue-in-cheek as tongue-between-teeth, and they’re biting down. It’s hard to believe that less than a year ago we were talking about these guys in the context of glam rock alter-egos and the most convincing shoulder dancing since Axl Rose. Now they’re making anthems to not giving a fuck and name checking Drake, Bowie and Ezra Koenig without breaking a sweat. If the rumors of Foxygen’s impending retirement are true, consider this France and Rado going out guns blazing, defiant of expectations and tired of everyone’s bullshit.
