I wish it was Spring weather vs. Cold, wet, rainy stay inside weather. This song makes me want to be outdoors. Excellent.
Give this song a listen...you won't be angry.

I liked their first album United, I was luke warm with Alphabetical, but really liked 2006's It's Never Been Like That and have been anticipating a new release by these Frenchies....oh side note, the lead singer is married to Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette)....that seems to be a point of reference you'll find on all the other blogs. Phoenix did some work with Air which did the score for Sofia's first movie....i wonder if thats how they met?
The current Track listing is below.
"Love Like a Sunset" (7:30)
Here are two songs from the new album that i really enjoy and remember who coined the phrase Timeless summertime rock...

Pree, led by May Tabol (formerly of Le Loup) emerged onto the DC music scene
with a string of compelling and intimate shows during the summer of 2008. Pree's
musical prowess evokes seductive and shadowy moods that call to mind Regina
Spektor's imaginative narratives as well as Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock's
rhythmic vocal stylings-- mixing haunting folk elements, unmistakable vocals,
and a remarkable command of words to elicit a fare as delicate as it is
Pree's debut album explores the dangers of building concrete walls
around intangible thoughts and impulses-- walls ultimately unable to house the
complex individuals they seek to shape, limit and define. Speaking through
characters with fractured personalities and questionable motives, A Chopping
Block examines the chaotic and often destructive relationships that take root
when individual fails to adopt cohesive and socially acceptable identities--
raising the question of whether social boundaries will ever be able to quantify
and contain any force as powerful and unstable, and as beautiful and reckless as
the human psyche.
