4-PHOENIX-Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix


phoenix
Another huge surprise in 2009: French combo Phoenix finally producing an album worthy of the hype that has always surrounded them. Even the title’s ironic classical references indicated their confidence in the masterful final result. Since “1901” exploded in the waves before the summer, shortly followed by “Lisztomania”, no one could doubt the famous Gallic act had produced an irresistible collection of pop tunes. Closer to the jaunty new-wave infused rock of The Strokes than to their former forays into blue-eyed soul from the eighties, “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix” was the most easily enjoyable record of the last ten months.

Released on V2. Available To Listen in Spotify.
