Favorite Sessions

KCRW Presents: PhoenixKCRW-FM

The French band Phoenix experienced massive success, both critically and commercially, with 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Now, four years later, the group has finally returned with a new album titled Bankrupt! Designed to push beyond its hit predecessor rather than replicate it, the album nevertheless retains Phoenix's gift for catchy power-pop hooks.

Between headlining appearances at Coachella, Phoenix recently performed "Entertainment" live in KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic studios. Head over to KCRW.com and catch the rest of the session.
