New music for the week of April 4, 2008

The latest single from Phantom Planet

Posted on

PHANTOM PLANET, ”Raise the Dead”
When did the poppy SoCal rockers turn into such excellent Arcade Fire-style anthem builders? Perhaps best known for an ex-member (actor/drummer Jason Schwartzman) and a TV theme song (”California,” which opened The O.C. every week), the quintet — fronted by Alex Greenwald — has gone epic on the title cut from its April 15 release, and it’s a glorious rhythmic racket.
