phoenix - wolfgang amadeus phoenix

Phoenix - 1901

I'm tired. I've been working hard all day and am still feeling the aftereffects of last night's mint julep over indulgence. There's nothing like whiskey, mint and sugar water to make for an evil Sunday. Still, I have more work to do and a very early morning tomorrow. At this point, the only thing that is going to keep me going and also let me get some sleep tonight, read no caffeine, is listening to Phoenix's new album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. It's true, the album is that good. In fact, it's infectious, dance in your seats good. And it's out in the US on May 26th.

While I'm being honest about the whiskey, and the dancing in my seat, I might as well tell you this album has been on repeat. The thing is, I don't see myself tiring of it anytime soon. I've already apologized to my neighbors for the number of times they will hear it on my back patio this summer. Soon enough they will be singing Lisztomania word for word. I'm sure of it. I'm only waiting for the weather to warm up a bit. After all, it is just the beginning of May.

As with most new albums, bands need to promote. You know what this means, Phoenix is on tour. Don't miss them if they stop by your city. Just don't forget to get your tickets before they sell out, if they haven't already.

Like my new media player? We can thank my hubs for that one!
