The city of lights. The city of lover. Paris goes by many names, but it seldom looks better than it does here:
I have an obsession with musicians who sing in English even if it isn’t their first language. Phoenix. The Notwist. These bands resonate at a deep level, and they expose the modern experience better than most. They love, live and learn. With Phoenix, there’s a certain amount of urgency to their particular brand of pop. It lends itself to the English language, and forces look critically at relationships in ways you haven’t.
So with that, raise your Lakefront Rendezvous—with that fleeting effervescence—and let’s get to Suds.
