Our favorite part of MTV's Unplugged was always the drum brushes because they made us think about applying BBQ sauce on our chicken with a graceful jazz grip. Anyway! Phoenix sounds so good stripped down, they don't even need a full band OR drums. No special drum-saucing needed. Hopefully you didn't get sold out of Phoenix's second New York City show at Music Hall of Williamsburg that we are presenting on Thursday, June 18th. Check out Phoenix's other unplugged track, "Playground Love" at Stereogum. You might recognize it from one of our other favorite Versailles bands, Air, masters of the backronym!
