Versailles, France popsters Phoenix dip through Portland on a West Coast jaunt centered around Coachella to amp up interest for their fifth album, Bankrupt!, which won't be out until April 23. Judging from the advance single "Entertainment," Phoenix are happy to keep things consistent, as they fasten heart-soaring pop onto tik-tik guitars and breezily danceable beats, something they've done many times before. The new song has a larger widescreen vista, perhaps, but could pretty easily fit onto their 2006 breakthrough It's Never Been Like That. Although Phoenix isn't breaking molds or challenging listeners, their smilingly likeable pop ensures that, despite the name of their new album, they'll never be short on cash. Ideas? That may be a different story. NED LANNAMANN
