1901 : Phoenix

In the past few months I've heard so much hype for French pop/rock band Phoenix, that my initial reaction was to avoid them, or more like, casually just never get around to looking them up.

Two things changed that. First, they turned up on the cover of a magazine I like, and second, I caught one of NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts. It was watching said Tiny Desk Concert that I realized that the peppy, buzzy song playing underneath that Cadillac commercial from a while ago was Phoenix's "1901."

Commence song crush. It's a really great tune, and cool in the non-overused, generic, sense of the word. It's the type of song I want to be caught listening to. Definitely check it out.
