It’s about time time for a new trick by an old favorite. After four long years of silence, the french alternative band Phoenix is finally out with their new album Bankrupt! Fortunately the ominous title does not refer to the band’s sound. Bankrupt! is an excellent fifth addition to Phoenix’s impressive discography and a worthy follow up to their critically acclaimed 2009 Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, (affectionately nicknamed WAP by fans). The album garnered Phoenix significant international airplay and won them that year’s Grammy for Best Alternative Album. But Bankrupt! is a different animal; it both celebrates the musical style they’re known for, and travels places up and beyond.
