For all of you Pitchfork nuts, you probably already know about Phoenix’s new album Wolfgang Amadeux coming out on May 25th, but most importantly the absolutely bitchin’ single they’ve released early to go with it, “1901.”
I wasn’t a Phoenix fan before I heard this song per se, well that’s not entirely accurate–I had no idea who they were. Just goes to show you how lame I am as a Reviews Editor. I’m doing all I can, people! God.
This song only released a day ago, but I can’t stop listening to it. The awesome synthesizer opener is what always gets me. The synthesizer is taking over music, and I love it. The song itself is a pop song, which is okay because the song rocks without the vocals.
Get a free download of the song by going to Phoenix’s MySpace page. They’re handing them out!
Alright, Phoenix. You’ve got my attention. Can’t wait for the album to come out.
