Sound Check #2: Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (RAC Mix)

@Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (@RAC Mix)

I’m not one to pick a favorite group/band with little thought.  However with that being said, I have come to realize that @Phoenix may very well be my current favorite group. Hailing from Versailles, France, the band is back with their 4th studio album “Bankrupt”.  They seem to have won by providing albums which I listen to whenever and wherever and always find myself singing along! Although, sometimes I haven’t the slightest idea of what he is saying so, I add my own lyrics. Sue me, you won’t get much.

I wasn’t in love with “Bankrupt”  when I first heard it. So, as you can imagine, I was kind of bummed. Now, after numerous listens, it has grown on me. In fact, some tracks seem to get stuck in my head for days. It may never live up to their previous Grammy award winning album, “Wolfgang Amadeus” for me but, that’s a hard album to follow. However, there are a few tracks on the album I am very fond of (you may see another one pop up on here). This track, “Trying To Be Cool” actually really didn’t do much for me then and well, still doesn’t.

BOOM! In steps, @RAC (Remix Artist Collective) who just can’t do wrong. They deliver yet another bouncy/nu-disco dance jam aimed at my heart. From what I gather, it’s a group of producers/artists that have been putting out remix gold for several years. I would give up a nut to catch a live set. Do yourself a favor and check out their soundcloud page – you will thank me later.

 

Hope you enjoy this track as much as I do….. The lyrics are quite scattered and leave me wondering what the fuck he is talking about but, only briefly.I forget as I just bounce off to the beat.

“City and desert coexist / Depending on the things you’re wearing / Wildlife binoculars / Tell me that you want me / Tell me that you want me”

    I’ve been an on-again off-again fan of Phoenix for quite some time now. A couple of months ago a friend posted something about their new “Bankrupt” album, which prompted me to both pull out their old albums and also give this new one a listen.

    Similarly, I wasn’t a fan of most of the album but occasionally skipped through the tracks. After keeping this album on rotation for a couple of weeks it also grew on me. It’s catchy tunes have had me humming along for weeks now.

    Great posting, by the way. Your take on RAC has intrigued me into checking out more of their mixes. It’s always nice to read a review by someone who is so obviously passionate about music. Thanks for the perspective!
