Want to Remix Phoenix? Here's Your Chance!
According to the commentary version of Phoenix's new album Bankrupt! (available on Spotify), "Trying to Be Cool" was one of the first songs the band started writing for the album, but one of the last that they finished. We're not sure why it took so long, but we couldn't be happier with the result. We've already seen the band play the song live on Letterm an and SNL. Now so they've sent us its stems.
Stems, for those who aren't aware of the technical jargon, are the individual components that make up a song (drums, vocals, horns, keyboards, etc.). You can download the stems below, and then remix them using whatever software or hardware you prefer. Don't hesitate to add in your own vocals and instruments, as well as any other changes you see fit.
Download the stems here: https://soundcloud.com/phoenix/sets/trying-to-be-cool-stems/s-fWWwt
Once you've finished your remix, send it to us on Soundcloud via this DropBox widget. Over the next few weeks, we'll share some of our favorites on the blog.
