Le big hug by Phoenix

Many people, like myself, feel that Phoenix's latest album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is one of the finest albums to be released in 2009 so far. And without a doubt, the album's first two singles, "1901" and "Lisztomania" is two of the year's best. Over the last few days, I've received two stunning remixes of both songs. France's Teenagers took hold of the album's lead single "1901" giving it the startling perceptive Parisians-by-way-of-London rocker feel that much of the Teenagers' 2008 debut Reality Check showcased. Only with "1901," we aren't subjected to that galling quasi-French accent.

Read on to listen to both of these remixes.

Los Angeles duo Classixx (aka Tyler Blake & Michael) take on second single "Lisztomania" and one of my personal favorite songs of the year. Unlike the Teenagers, Classixx took on the challenge of breathing fresh, new life into an already riveting song. Classixx opted to give "Lisztomania" an almost Merriweather Post Pavilion-esque underwater feel. Definitely my favorite of the two.
