Some New Phoenix Vids For Your Enjoyment

Well, it's Monday morning, and almost a week has passed sinced Phoenix's latest record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix hit the digital domain. As such, the already busy band has kicked the PR machine into high gear, with the beginning of touring (after some unfortunate cancellations) and online "appearances".

The first is a studio session with Stereogum where the band delivered acoustic versions of two numbers: "Lisztomania" off the new record, and "Playground Mania", from the Virgin Suicides soundtrack. You can check out the "Lisztomania" video above, and click here to to see "Playground Love".

The second vid is a semi-official video for the first single off of the new record, "1901". The vid was apparently co-commissioned by Dazed Digital and MTV. It's definitely worth checking out, and if we do say so ourselves: the disjointed neon vibe of the vid suits the song perfectly. Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to check it out.

Phoenix is on tour now and plays the Regency Grand on June 27th.
