Watch: Foxygen debuts new songs “Cannibal Holocaust” and “Hang”

on August 12, 2014, 5:15pm

On October 14th, rock revivalists Foxygen will release a bonkers 24-song double album entitled, …And Star Power, via Jajaguwar. Already, the San Francisco-based outfit has unveiled the lead single, “How Can You Really” and offered the live debut of “Can’t Contextualize My Mind”. Today, they took to Seattle radio station KEXP to reveal two more tracks: “Cannibal Holocaust” and “Hang”.

Fortunately, “Cannibal Holocaust” has little to do with Ruggero Deodato’s titular 1980 horror film, which was by all accounts really gross. Instead, “Cannibal Holocaust” the song is quite uplifting. Backed by a light organ and faint touches of psychedelia, it feels like a lost ballad from the late ’60s.

Like “Cannibal Holocaust”, “Hang” also boasts ’60s-inflected organs, but here, the guitars are more prominent and frontman Sam France takes on a Mick Jagger-esque howl towards the end of the track. While much of the previously shared …And Star Power tracks have been relatively subdued, the latter half of “Hang” shows glimpses of the band’s early, unhinged psych rock days.

Watch the live clips of “Cannibal Holocaust”, “Hang”, and lead single “How Can You Really” below (via Pitchfork).
