Ok so as you guys know I have been a lazy ass and haven’t made any posts in April ’cause of final exams, graduation, celebrating, and yada yada yada. I’ll be doing super super quick reviews (like seriously under 100 words probsies) on Yeah Yeah Yeah’s It’s Blitz!, Boy Least Likely To’s Law of the Playground, Camera Obscura’s My Maudlin Career, and Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Short and sweet just ’cause these bands have been blogged about like crazy for the past little while already and I’d rather cover albums that have had less attention more specifically. Plus, there’ll be a quick recap of two shows I went to, Mother Mother and Junior Boys. All after the jump!
Phoenix are a French indie rock band. Thomas Mars (vocals), Deck D’arcy (bass), Christian , Mazzalai (guitar), and Laurent Brancowitz (guitar) all grew up together in Versailles…also home and culture to Air and Daft Punk. Interestingly, Brancowitz left Bangalter and de Homem-Christo (who later formed Daft Punk) to permanently join Phoenix. Thomas Mars is also the husband to Sophia Coppola and helped with the vocals on the infamous track “Playground Love” by Air. With such a great background and fantastic influences like these, it’s no wonder Phoenix is unremittingly successful in their soft indie post pop sound. Their release of their 4th studio album is due late May this year entitled Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Wow. Bow in the presence of greatness! They have just released a new single for all anxious ears to hear! After the jump!
