Phoenix: “If I Ever Feel Better” (2000)

Although French synth/soul band Phoenix share roots with Daft Punk (keyboardist/guitarist Laurent Brancowitz was formerly with short-lived band Darlin, as were both Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of the more famous EDM band) on their debut they established more of a breezy sound reminiscent of 70’s California pop and FM “Yacht Rock”.

Though this band will never make footprints as large as, say, Steely Dan, they can be appreciated by fans of such “lite rock” heavyweights.
