It had been almost a year to the day since Sam France of Foxygen fell off a stage, canceling the band's 2013 tour just as it was getting started. But now he and songwriting partner Jonathan Rado are back with a glittery, glammy vengeance. On the day of their live session at KEXP, the two announced the follow-up to their epic We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic with the even-more-epic 24-song, four-suite double LP ...And Star Power.

We hadn't yet heard a bit of the new album, but when France and Rado brought the full nine-member group into our tiny studio, we couldn't help but swoon over their sultry astral melodies. They perform "How Can You Really" here.
