I haven't yet had the opportunity to talk much about Phantogram since my writing duties began at Fake Plastic Tunes. Their debut album, Eyelid Movies, came out in mid-2010 and newer material from other artists has taken priority. Yet, I highly recommend giving it several spins- it boasts four to five downtempo masterworks (may I recommend radio hit "When I'm Small, "Running From the Cops, and "Bloody Palms") in the vein of Moby and Crystal Castles. This duo from New York, Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter, look to have a strong shelf life. They will be releasing an EP later this year so look for it here on the site.
