Phoenix

Jim and Greg take on French Pop in the next two segments. First, they welcome up and coming quartet Phoenix. For a while, they were known as“that band fronted by that guy with Sophia Coppola.”But now with Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, they are more widely known by American audiences. In fact, you‘ve probably heard them in this commercial. But, don’t hold that against them. The men from Phoenix are huge music fans, mentored by the members of Air. They may make heady references to 19th century Hungarian composers in their songs, but never lose sight of the goals of great pop music. You can hear that in their live acoustic performance on the show, which includes a cover of the Air song "Playground Love."
