Phoenix, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" (Glassnote)
French alternative rock/electronic band with a light pop touch moves from Astralwerks in the U.S. to Glassnote on its latest album. The excitement about the quartet continues to build following its April 4 appearance on "Saturday Night Live," when it performed first single, infectious "1901." The band's June 12 appearance at Bonnaroo kicks off a North American club and small theater tour.
