Friendly Fires Remix Phoenix

By Amrit Singh / September 17, 2009

Just when you thought we were putting a cap on our ongoing coverage of how it’s been a Very Phoenix Summer, with the logical extension of the band’s brand expansion (stumping for fun-loving luxury SUVs, naturally), here we are today — another day, another Phoenix remix. But this one’s fun! Pretty fun. Instead of dub and chill club, past Decomposed session vets transform the Wolfgang tune du jour (“Fences,” which is a first as far as I can tell) into a cowbell-pitched house cut, relocating the band from the ’80s to the decade later. While you enjoy that, pass through these pics by Andrew Youssef from last night’s show at the Greek Theater on a stacked bill that also featured the Emily Haines Band and the Soft Pack.

Phoenix – Fences (Friendly Fires Remix)” (MP3)

The ID3 tag attributes the track to the Fences EP, which suggests that’ll be the next Wolfgang single, and that there will be more Phoenix remixes (joy?) on the way.
