Product Description

Electronic rock duo Phantogram came out of nowhere in early 2010 with the release of their debut album Eyelid Movies (Barsuk), which was lauded by both underground and mainstream press from Pitchfork to Alternative Press, SPIN to NPR. In the whirlwind year and a half following the album's release, Phantogram (along with touring drummer Tim Oakley) have been on the road almost constantly, building a well-deserved reputation as a tremendous live band. After finally making some time to finish and master a batch of new songs - just in time to go back out on a year-capping headline run (dates below) - the band is supremely excited to release Nightlife, a new mini-LP that will be available November 1st.

Solid EP while we await the second album Oct. 30 2011
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Phantogram is the NY-based duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, bringing outstanding trip-hop electronica music (not unlike, say, latter day Portishead). The band released its debut album "Eyelid Movies" in 2010, an immediately classic-sounding collection that was one of the top 3 albums of the year for me. Now comes eagerly awaited new material, in the form of this EP.

"Nightlife" (6 tracks; 27 min.) starts off with arguable the weakest track on here, the tentative "16 years" which really goes nowhere. Things get much better with "Don't Move". The first half of this collection closes with an alright sounding "Turning Into Stone" (only one of two songs on here where Josh Carter takes lead vocals, all the others are Sarah-fronted, one of the big evolutions since "Eyelid Movies"). I rate the first half 3.5 stars. The second half starts of with the fantastic "Make a Fist" (with underlying drums reminding me of "Turn It Off" from "Eyelid Movies"). It is my favorite track on here. The title track starts off deceptively with delicate acoustic guitar sounds, only to evolve into a slowburner. The last track is "A Dark Tunnel", which would've fitted nicely onto "Eyelid Movies". I rate the second half of this EP 4.5 stars.

In all, this is a solid EP while we await the band's second studio album, and as such a welcome addition to Phantogram's catalog. But hurry up already and get us that second studio album sonner rather than later! I've seen Phantogram live twice earlier this summer, once here in Cincinnati and then again at Lollapalooza, and live the band brings just a massive sound by adding a live drummer and guitarist. Not to be missed if you have a chance to catch them in concert. Meanwhile I'm enjoying "Nightlife" quite a bit.

more goodness from Phantogram Nov. 22 2011

Boy Girl Duo from NY releases a little teaser to wet our appetites. Stylistic it follows what they did in their debut, which was in and of itself amazing. My favorite from the group is Don't Move, infectious, poppy goodness. Nightlife and 16 years are more mellow, low key songs perfect for showcasing Sarah's beautiful voice.

One of my favorite Artists! June 5 2013
By Desiree Chavers - Published on Amazon.com

I really love Phatogram! They're a great duo with a fresh, unique sound. I have recommended Phantogram to people, even if they don't like Indie/Alternative/Electronic, and they still loved them. They have a very versatile sound. Grimes is said to be a better, updated version of them, but I will always love Phantogram. The album art is also beautiful and well worth the money as well as deserve the support.

I'm really enjoying Phantogram. I have been a fan of Radiohead, Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack, and based on my enjoyment of these bands, I recommend this album.

No surprises (A good thing) Nov. 17 2011
By Michael B. - Published on Amazon.com
On their new EP, Phantogram hasn't really changed their sound, so they still got that whole My Bloody Valentine/Portishead thing going, which I love still. My favorite track off this release is 16 Years. I was fortunate enough to see them live last weekend in Birmingham, AL, and they were amazing. They made extensive use of lights, fog, lasers, and on the fly vocal recording for effects and echoes. It was hard to believe such a massive wave of sound came from 3 people. It reminded me of this club in Panama City Beach called Club LaVela, which is sectioned by different areas and music, so you can wander to the rock room, the hip hop room, the dance room. The Phantogram show was like that, just all at once. Can't wait for the next full length, and the next tour.
