Phoenix Performs Set on MTV's 'Unplugged'

France's greatest export turns it down a bit for a six-song performance on the channel that was formerly into music, and Phoenix sounds better than ever. I especially like their use of the vibes. The mellow set includes "Lizstomania," "1901," "Rome" and "Armistice" from their last album, as well as Air's "Playground Love" (Do you get the feeling they wish this was their song?). The song above is "Long Distance Call" from my favorite Phoenix album, 'It's Never Been Like That.' To see all six songs, just wait for the list to come up at the end of each video. Enjoy.
