This might be a little confusing, but Diane Coffee is not a hipster barista-turned-singer. It is actually the moniker of the latest side project from Foxygen’s Shaun Fleming. A few months back I heard Foxygen interviewed on the radio, and Fleming mentioned how he had dozens of songs waiting to be recorded. Now we know what he did with them.

Diane Coffee sounds like Foxygen covering Leslie Grace’s “Be My Baby.” I’m not a huge fan of Foxygen, but I’m a sucker for good throwback soul. The video for the song “Green” is youthful and nostalgic. A group of kids causing trouble while skating around town and chasing girls. Classic with a modern context, it represents the song perfectly. Check out the video.

The debut Diane Coffee album, My Friend Fish, is in stores now. Fleming is touring in support of the effort and will be bringng Diane Coffee to The Echo on November 7th. It will be awesome. Go. Do it.
