Now the French bands Daft Punk and our guests today Phoenix find themselves at the top of the charts all over the world. For Phoenix it is thanks to the enormous success of their 2009 album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.
The band is back with their new album Bankrupt! and today we’ll hear a performance of both new and old songs from World Cafe Live during the recent Non-Commvention of radio people in Philadelphia. More importantly we get to hear frontman Thomas Mars and guitarist Laurent “Branco” Brancowitz chat about their recent rise and growing up in the posh confines of Versailles.
In May, international pop-rock sensations Phoenix stopped by Non-COMM for a 45-minute set that pulled from almost all of their five studio albums. Check out the photos from heir set on TheKey.XPN.org
This session originally aired on July 12, 2013.
