When I first discovered them, they sang the great song "Too Young". Now, The French band Phoenix releases their fifth studio record "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix". It's Never Been Like That is their the most ambitious album for sure. And first single of that album "Long Distance Call" still exists on my playlist.
The most recent single is "1901" which is totally a Phoenix song. All i can say is that I love this band. They return after three-year break with a great album.
This is a curious song I heard a while back. It’s from Miike Snow, a new band that apparently prefers to be rather mysterious, so I don’t know much about them. They have a debut album coming out this year, and have thus far only release this one single (as well as a couple of remixes that are pretty easy to find through Downtown Record’s site if you want to download them legally). It’ll be interesting once more material come out, because it’s hard to get a grasp on a band when you’ve only ever heard one song. When I first heard ‘Animal’ I loved it and desperately wanted to download it, but only the remixes were available. By the time I got my hands on the album version my excitement had waned. What seemed so fresh the first time felt less energetic with each listen. Still, it’s a pretty cool song. Miike Snow intrigues me, and I think this a band to keep an eye on.
