So, I've got this list I keep of songs I've heard that I like that I would potentially download, or to check out the artist. A lot of the time, this list grows without me going back to really look at it for a long time. But today, I heard the Phoenix song "Long Distance Call" and it sounded very familiar. I consulted my list, and there it was, 7 songs back. I've heard a lot of buzz about this band lately, but somehow, if I dont stumble on a band on my own, I tend to ignore the hype.
Phoenix, consider yourself stumbled upon.
Coming to Chicago? No US dates on the tour schedule. Maybe a p4k or lolla stop???

Despite what Scott Masson said in my interview with him about being over the 'scene', he's added a few dates for the band on their myspace page. More details in my write-up for Gapers Block today.
In other news, I'll be at the Cut Copy/Matt & Kim show at The Vic tonight! Should be a great show!

I was there for the awesome secret show when they filmed part of this video at The Hideout. And don't think I wasn't looking for myself on my first run-through...
