Phoenix Releases Multitracks for Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Phoenix band

Attention all you budding mash-up artists and DJs: Phoenix has just released the multitrack recordings of every one of their songs on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. This means that it’s now easier than ever to remix and mash-up Phoenix’s latest album. It’s a pretty awesome move on their part, if you ask me.

Over the next week or two, I’m sure some amazing stuff will surface from all corners of the web (although we’ll have to brace ourselves for the initial influx of crappy remixes). Feeling creative? Grab your copy of Albeton Live and get remixing!

Friendly Fires Remixes Phoenix's "Fences"

In keeping with the Phoenix theme of late, I figured that I’d throw up this hot new remix of them by Friendly Fires, a British indie/electro-pop group. The song is “Fences,” which is the third track on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.

With all the cowbell, snare drum, and piano in the beginning of the remix, for a second I thought I was listening to an early 90’s rap song— something like Boyz II Men’s “Motown Philly” or even Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison.” Alright, on second thought maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. (I forgot how awesome of a song “Poison” is — I’m totally gonna blast it at the next dance party I go to.) But seriously, take a listen to Friendly Fires’ killer rendition of “Fences” and let us know what you think.

Phoenix Performs "1901" on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien

Phoenix band

Last night, French alt rock band Phoenix made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and performed their hit song “1901.” I was glad they finally stopped by The Tonight Show to play for Conan and Andy, because lately it seems like they’ve been popping up everywhere else.

Earlier in the summer, the group was seen touting Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix on shows like Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and even Saturday Night Live. And just the other day I saw that they’ve been featured in a Cadillac commercial. Have they sold out? Maybe. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that “1901” is an awesome song. Besides, if Santogold (aka Santigold) can be featured in a crappy light beer commercial and still retain her credibility, then Phoenix has nothing to worry about.
