Wrote a little thing on Shaun Fleming’s new music video under his moniker Diane Coffee: “Everyday” from the upcoming Everybody’s A Good Dog. It’s a record that sounds a lot like the Technicolor record collection-pillaging rock of Foxygen, the band Fleming is best known for — and this fun video sorta nods at that with the glam rock moves.
It’s safe to say that few bands have had roller-coaster trajectories quite like Foxygen. Fronted by the classic rock record collection-loving duo that is longtime friends Sam France and Jonathan Rado, the Los Angeles band found success with its delightful 2013 album We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, which won over fans with playful melodies and producer Richard Swift’s trademark Technicolor flourishes that transparently captured the breezy pop psychedelia of mid-1960’s bands like The Zombies and The Kinks. But amid considerable hype and high-pressure expectations, Foxygen almost immediately began showing signs of unravelling.
