I saw Phoenix at Terminal 5 about two months ago and what a show it was. Unlike most bands, Phoenix actually sounds better live, the music is as loud and energetic as it is crystal clear. The French men are also quite the showmen, there was one point when lead singer Thomas Mars just laid down right next to the speakers and pretty much relaxed for a songs duration, got right back up and rocked the place all over again. The place was packed and everyone seemed to be having a blast. Great music and lot’s of pretty girls, highly recommended.
Anyways, while this post features the modern Phoenix classic Lisztomania, it is also about one of my favorite producer/remixer duo’s, Holy Ghost!.Â Straight out of Brooklyn, the duo is known for their 2008 jam Hold On, after which they have gone on to remix songs for Moby, MGMT, Cut Copy and of course Phoenix. This remix of Listomania is from an awesome compilation called French Attack!, Vol. 2 that I came across while shopping on iTunes. I’m late for the airport so I’ll just leave you guys with my two favorite songs from the album. Enjoy.
Y- Hellow Bye Bye
