Phoenix is one of those bands that just got past me somehow. I hadn't really heard anything about the band until they released the latest Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, and then I happened to catch their SNL performance, purely by accident, sparking my curiosity.
Not the usual musical fare for my ears, but there is something extremely palatable and refreshingly upbeat about the songs on their latest release. How can you not find yourself singing along with "Lisztomania"?
