Ever since I saw them perform live at Melkweg in Amsterdam in 2005, Phoenix has consistently occupied the rarefied space known to the privileged few as my car's 6-disc CD changer. This is a big deal--only 5 other CDs can reside in rotation at any given time. The francophonic ultrasonic foursome team up once again with Philippe Zdar, the man behind the decks of their first studio recording United, for their fourth oeuvre titled Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The full album drops May 25th, but you can download the super chouette new single 1901, here.
Just in time for spring & Easter, culinary demigod Thomas Keller's team at Bouchon Bakeryhas created the perfect treat: Rice Krispy Easter Eggs! Originally set up to provide bread to Keller's restaurants in Yountville, New York City, and Las Vegas, Bouchon Bakery has expanded its offerings to include pastries and all manner of delectible South Beach Diet violation. If you find yourself nowhere near a Bouchon Bakery, The Kitchn has the recipes available for the Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and Strawberry Rice Krispy Easter Eggs.
