Jason Bentley, KCRW Music Director
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.
