Listen: Foxygen offshoot Diane Coffee cover Washed Out’s “Amor Fati”

Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming, better known as Diane Coffee, revealed his solo debut My Friend Fish late last year. Since then, he’s kept busy churning out more ’70s psych-rock numbers, including November’s government shutdown-inspired single “Gov T”.
