Phoenix, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)
Label: V2, Loyaute, Glassnote
Big Boi: "Once again, I got into Phoenix from when I saw a live performance of the song 'Lisztomania' on MTV. And that song just makes you feel really good. Music is supposed to make you feel a certain type of way. And how he sang it, and the progression of the bass line and the song, it's a beautiful record. So when I saw that song, I Shazamed it, and it took me to the album. Another one of my favorites is 'Rome.'
"Original music is where it's at. And the lead singer doesn't sing typical melodies. The way he sings, it's against the grain. And it makes for a unique sound. I think they got an album coming out [in 2013], too."
