DESCRIPTION
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including digital download. 2013 release, Phoenix's first LP in four years promises more experimentation than on their breakthrough, 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, and sure, there's a few changes to their palette which are apparent right from the get-go with Entertainment, the album's hooky opening statement. There's a heavier dependence on retro synthesizers and tinny, artificial-sounding drums, making this their most explicitly synth-pop outing to date. The left-turn of Love Like a Sunset from their last record has a counterpart here in the title track, which initially toys with abstract electronics up until Thomas Mars' smooth vocals are reintroduced and the song soars calmly to its end-point. Despite the slight shift in sonics, each track here is as harmonious and inviting as ever: Bourgeois and The Real Thing both radiate joy and melancholy in equal measure. The band makes this kind of balancing act look effortless on an album bursting with treasures
