Phoenix’s breakthrough album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, is an opus of electronic pop exuberance—which is why it’s so interesting to see their six-song set on MTV’s Unplugged. Watch the performance, featuring acoustic guitar and a xylophone, after the jump. It’s also interesting to note that Phoenix will be providing the soundtrack for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming film Somewhere. And, if the trailer is to be believed (which features an acoustic Strokes song), the soundtrack should be all sorts of mellow and soothing, perhaps further showcasing Phoenix’s stripped-down talents.
