Artist: Phoenix Track: "1901" Album: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Listen

Some likened Phoenix to "the French Strokes" and wrote them off. Why? France is cool. So are The Strokes. This band is sweet -- great summer-nights music, says Chris DeVille. He's right. Detractors are wrong. You be the judge of these prancing, lighthearted melodies and catchy arrangements.

Try not to have fun listening to this song.

The band is giving away the single for free at the above link. The new album drops May 25.
