[VICTORY LAP] I’m still a bit mystified as to why power-pop band Phoenix’s new record, Bankrupt!, was met with a sort of critical “meh” this spring. Though it lacks a world-beating single like “1901” or “Lisztomania,” the band’s approach—take the sugar-rush melodies and incessant tempos of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and pile on layer after layer of high-gloss synths—has made it one of the preeminent stadium bands around. Shit, at this point Phoenix is basically French royalty. When’s the last time you got to see a band that headlined Coachella slay the Crystal Ballroom twice in one year?
