After receiving much love from audiences over the past year, and winning a Grammy, French pop band Phoenix is giving something back: a free live album is now available for download on their website.
Recorded earlier this month, Live in Sydney includes performances of eight tracks from 2009’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which landed at No. 3 on SPIN’s 40 Albums of the Year list.
The free live album serves as a primer for yet another North American tour for the Parisian quartet, which kicks off April 17 in Santa Cruz, California, stops at Coachella the following day, and wraps up June 13 at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, where their worldwide touring for Wolfgang actually began in June 2009.

While their shows this Spring will be full-blown, full-band affairs, Phoenix has a softer side, too, which they displayed during a stripped down performance at SPIN last December.
