Foxygen released their 24-track '…And Star Power' album in October 2014.
Announcing the record at the time, the band wrote: "Foxygen have joined Star Power. It is a punk band, and you can be in it, too. Star Power is the radio station that you can hear only if you believe. A gaggle of guest stars. Roman-numeraled musical suites. Vocals recorded on a shoddy tape machine at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Chateau Marmont. A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom rompers. A cinematic auditory adventure for speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees and misfits. We're all stars of the scene."
NME's Alex Denney wrote of the record: "Sloppy and schizophrenic, ‘…And Star Power’ is the sound of record-collection rock having a nervous breakdown."
