A song a day: Phoenix - Love like a sunset

Phoenix meant nothing to me until I heard this song. Before that they were indie hipsters singing pretty songs and probably worst of all, they were from France (I kid, I kid). But when you essentially have a pop band put a eight minute song in the middle of their record and the vocals don't kick in until 6:13, you know something more is going on. While this song transitions through a number of different phases, there are moments of pure beauty that transcend any prejudice you can have against a bunch of good looking French people playing perfect pop songs. --
