In a way they remind me of the Strokes. They are fun music for the times, but I’m not totally convinced they will last. But that’s not necessarily a horrible thing. Some things last, some don’t. People get enjoyment from both.

Phoenix’s show at sunset at Coachella 2010 was a great time, as sunset slots usually are. Everyone was singing and dancing happily; lots of chicks sitting on dudes’ shoulders. An all-around positive vibe and a strong performance (which is unlike the Strokes).
