Remember 2009? There were fewer songs more irresistible than this French band's "Lisztomania," with the possible exception of "1901," which is just as catchy and, at least until the choruses hit, pretty much the same song. After Phoenix's "Saturday Night Live" appearance last week to tease its new album, "Bankrupt!," it's clear these musicians do their airy, stylishly catchy pop trick pretty well ¿ but it's all they do. How did this band get a headlining slot at Coachella?
