We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic is the second studio album by American indie rock duo Foxygen. The album was released on January 22, 2013. The album's release was preceded by the release of the single "Shuggie" on October 4, 2012, as well as the album's second single "San Francisco", which was released January 9, 2013. "No Destruction" was also named as Best New Track by Pitchfork on January 9. Post-release, "No Destruction" was released as the third single, and an official music video was uploaded to YouTube, which Foxygen announced was 'a music video 8 years in the making'.
Christian Taylor 90FM said of the album: "On the whole, the album carries hints of Tame Impala’s recent album, Lonerism, and adds a whole lot of swagger. Fans of Pond, the Velvet Underground, and Lou Reed should find plenty to love in this phenomenal piece of retro-rock work." Austin Trunick of Under The Radar said: "The record taps into old AM hippie rock territory ... Motown, soul, acid rock ... and even classic French pop." In a favourable review by NME, Lisa Wright states that "Foxygen have managed to spray every shade from their bizarre, Technicolor imaginations onto a record that bursts with lovable eccentricities, but never tries too hard."
