Foxygen recently nixed their entire European tour schedule citing "creative health" reasons, but the Los Angeles psych-pop duo found time to record an installment of La Blogothèque's Take Away Show series. Trolling the rain-kissed streets of Paris, the '60s-infatuated two-piece (along with several live players) performed three tracks off their recently released sophomore album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. Frontman Sam France does his best rock star impression — smoking cigarettes, mugging for the camera, playing with his hair, yelping till his voice goes hoarse, and urging passersby to sing along — while leading Jonathan Rado and the rest of the crew through "On Blue Mountain," "In the Darkness," and "No Destruction."
