From a mess to the masses

A catchy tune from the French band Phoenix. We heard this in the car last night, and Cheryl mentioned that this band's songs don't get airplay in France because the band sings in English. A quick search to confirm that lead me to this USA Today article which includes another bit of trivia: the band's front man Thomas Mars has a child with director Sophia Coppola.

One of the recent commenters on this video on YouTube complains that others have compared Phoenix's latest album to Radiohead's OK Computer. That reminded me of this exchange on Bijan Sabet's blog last month, where I was surprised to find that I wasn't the only one who thought Radiohead peaked with The Bends.
