Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Remixes
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Glassnote Entertainment
Let's face it: It's hard to further polish a gem like Phoenix's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. And to be fair, this collection of remixes from the album doesn't really try, offering instead a selection of agreeable alterations from the likes of Alex Metric, Passion Pit and others, who generally tug the French rockers off the stage and into the middle of the dancefloor. But the best mixes go further afield, like Turzi's hushed electro trance, YACHT's Philip Glass disco revamp and, particularly, Animal Collective's reverb-soaked reverie.
