Phoenix on World Cafe: Vintage

Vintage Cafe From Phoenix Is Filled With Their Best

We have pulled a good one out of the archive. Rising from the shelves is Phoenix. It is a combination of stellar on stage performances from the stage of World Cafe Live recorded in 2013 and a very fun interview with Thomas Mars, lead singer and musical muse for wife Sofia Coppola’s movies, and guitarist “Branco.” It’s a generous performance of music from the band’s then new album Bankrupt! and the album that made the Frenchmen international stars, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.
