Phoenix Phest

So there is now available to all of you blogging music loving hipsters a Phoenix Remix Album, only available digitally. Before you rush to your iTUNES to purchase, give me a moment to heed your haste. The album does not take the play order of the original W.A.P. album, considering there are no remixes of quite of few of the band's tastiest licks and elevendy-billion of Fences and Lisztomania.  It’s a challenge to remix a Phoenix track and make it either better or more intriguing.  That being said, the majority of the album never reaches to even the base ranks of either better or intriguing.  The Friendly Fires and Passion Pit remixes I most specifically hold in contempt.  There are only slight glimmers of goodness from Alex Metric, who can turn goose poop into gold as far as I'm concerned, and Devendra Banhart's haunting re-do of Rome; whom you've already heard on BWILLACKERS. Well, you can't win all the time. As far as I'm concerned, one of the best Phoenix remixes I’ve heard comes from the duo of Classixx, and this bad boy wasn't even on the album! Download this'en and save your iTUNES money for Chromeo's new one!

Lisztomania (Classixx Version)

The remix album may not have brought me much joy, but this Phoenix/80's mashup sher does!
