Phoenix: Alphabetical

Ahh, the hipster lifestyle album. It's a valuable tool in the arsenal, and no discerning music fan should be without a few of them. At its best the genre can boast such classics as Air's Moon Safari and Stereolab's Emperor Tomato Ketchup, but ultimately it's an empty endeavor, its sheer ephemerality being its downfall.
