Phoenix/Passion Pit @ Central Park Summerstage, NYC 9/26/09

As advertised, Phoenix treated Central Park’s Summerstage to two sold-out nights of their danceable and occasionally epic insouciance this past weekend. The lineup was a synth-lover’s delight, pairing the Frenchmen with the more sugar-rushed and helium-voiced keyboard pop of Massachusetts men Passion Pit in the opening slot. And it wouldn’t be a Monday without news of another Phoenix remix, although this time it’s more must-grabbable than usual: Neighbors team up with Warner Bro Devendra Banhart to craft this elegant retake on Wolfgang standout (redundant) “Rome.” Enjoy Natasha Ryan’s pics from Saturday night while you listen:

Phoenix – “Rome (Neighbors Feat. Devendra Banhart Remix)” (MP3)

That comes via Phoenix. Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is a good album.
