Great new band: PHOENIX
I finally got a chance to listen to Phoenix. I am now a huge fan. These Parisian guys have a little hint of the Shins. Pitchfork gave it a 8.0 and it was deemed as the esteemed "Best New Music" a few weeks ago. Their third album, It's Never Been Like That is a solid cd. My favorite song is "Long Distance Call" which starts out sounding like 2001 Space Odyssey then kicks into a poppy almost Spoon sounding beat. Here is the video
Here is are two tracks from a live show. "Long Distance Call" and "Rally"
