Music Video Mondays: Foxygen go mellow + The Rebel Light get collage-y
California's Foxygen suffer from an unfortunate band name, but luckily make up for it with sweet, playful tunes, that combine Dylan-esque warbles with Hair-inspired moments of grandeur.

"San Francisco" appears on the record We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic (yes, really!), out now.

The band's debut, self-titled EP dropped a few weeks back; scoop it up for free via Bandcamp.
