Phoenix 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix'
Phoenix had no way of knowing how big of an impact that *Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix* would finally have once they released it on May 25, 2009. At first, because of their decision to tour festivals in France and Germany where they were just another name on a poster, the response to the album seemed muted. Then they came over to the United States. “We knew there was this other life online, this secret society listening to our music that was not showing up to the shows,” Mars said. “Then we played Bonnaroo, the first U.S. [festival] we played, and I remember I was late and when I arrived at the festival site and I heard the tent was super loud and I thought it was going to be really hard to follow whoever was playing there. Then I realized that for 20 minutes, it was the crowd waiting for us to go there. I remember thinking ‘This is gonna be a crazy ride from now on.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
