Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado is stepping out on his own, releasing his debut studio LP later this year. After the excellent 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic, Rado shows himself to be just as wonderful a voice on his own. “Faces” fits into the Foxygen aesthetic of being indebted to the rock and roll of the sixties and seventies, with its Woodstock-era sunshine vibe. However, the song’s second half features a thrilling, Deerhunter-esque wall of sound that is strikingly beautiful.
