Phantogram - Eyelid Movies

Hailing from the small town of Saratoga Springs, NY Phantogram is an indie duo that certainly love their hip-hopey beats. Although their hushed, delicate indie rock vibe sounds right at home on the Bursuk label (Rilo Kiley, Mates of State, Death Cab For Cutie), the 11 songs on this full length debut are back boned by electronic beats similar to those of The XX and Portishead. Toss in a little shoegaze guitar and soft vocals and you’ve got a recipe that's something really delicious!

Their first full length album, a follow up to a 2009 5 song EP, was released on February 9, 2010. For fans of the genre they are definitely worth checking out! Phantogram has recently toured with the likes of Zero 7, Ra Ra Riot and Yeasayer. You can purchase the album on iTunes. Check out my personal favorite Mouthful Of Diamonds below.
