Phoenix stopped by KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on Monday for a set, and I’m so glad the band didn’t resort to an acoustic set. I don’t ever wanna hear 1901 in acoustic form again; it just doesn’t do the song justice.
And I’ll agree with Casey that Lisztomania is quickly rising as one of the year’s best songs. No surprise it’s the first song Phoenix plays here, but they immediately follow it up with older tracks Long Distance Call and Consolation Prizes. (And, yes, three years qualifies as “older.”)
