“Trying to Be Cool” is the latest jam from Phoenix’s Bankrupt! to get a video, courtesy the Creator’s Project and the Spanish directing ensemble CANADA, and it’s awesome – watch as the band explore a special effects studio, light stuff on fire, beat small children at chess, and crash a synchronized dance rehearsal. Who knew Thomas Mars was so great at ping pong? Also – who can we write to to make sure those satin Phoenix jackets get a wider-scale release? The clip’s practically guaranteed to put a smile on your face – check it out.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
