Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing includes download certificate. Phantograms music sounds like it s made by a band from the city. Electronic loops, Hip Hop beats, Shoegaze, Soul and Pop each finds its way into their songs. Unexpectedly, the band doesn't live and work in a major urban center, but rather calls the town of Saratoga Springs, NY (population 26,186) home. Despite the cultural influence of local Skidmore College and a relatively small scene of adventurous musicians and listeners, Saratoga isn't exactly teeming with fans of J Dilla, My Bloody Valentine, or Serge Gainsbourg. But Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, the pair who make up Phantogram have flourished in Saratoga. In fact, the town itself isn't rural enough for their taste they drive almost every day another 45 minutes into upstate farmland to a barn they call Harmony Lodge to write and record.

Love all of the tracks on the cd! Very cool and relaxing vibe. I just got this cd for my birtday, my friend got it online. I plan to buy the second one 'nightlife' as well. I wanted to support this band from buying both their cd's. I hope they come to my city so i can see them live!

HASH(0xa684d3d8) out of 5 stars 4.5 stars... Early contender for album of the year Feb. 14 2010
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Upstate NY-based duo Phantogram, consisting of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, issued a couple of EPs in 2009 that quickly gained critical acclaim, in particular with the song "When I'm Small", and now finally comes the US release of their debut album, which was released in late 2009 in overseas markets. If you're not familiar with the band's sound, think Portishead or even Neon Indian.

"Eyelid Movies" (11 tracks; 45 min.) starts off with a blast, an upbeat "Mouthful of Diamonds", followed by their best song, the earlier-mentioned "When I'm Small" (both from their March '09 EP), the latter being so infectious, you just want to play it over and over again. But great tracks follow one after another, "Turn It Off", with great off-beat underlying drums. "Running From the Cops" is another great trip-hop tune. "All Dried Up" provides a breather to give way to "As Far As I Can See", yet another mesmerizing track, what a great fabulous first half of the album. The second half starts off with the only clunker on this album, "You Are the Ocean", a 5+ min. track that goes nowhere and has mediocre lyrics to boot ("This song is about you/Cuz I can't live without you"). But the best is yet to come after that, with "Bloody Palms", which is a coulda-shoulda be major radio single (if mainstream radio were any good, which of course it isn't), and "Futuristic Casket", another irresistible trip-hop track. The album closes with the pensive "10,000 Claps".

In all, I can't emphasize enough how impressed and charmed I am with this debut album of Phantogram. Sure to make my end of the year "best of" list, and quite high on it. Can't wait to see this band live at some point. If you wonder where you can hear this band, check out WOXY (BAM! The Future of Rock and Roll), the internet-only station that brings the best indie-music in the country. Meanwhile "Eyelid Movies" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

HASH(0xa684d42c) out of 5 stars One of the Better Cross-Genre Offerings You'll Ever Hear May 21 2010
By Hubert Sawyers III - Published on Amazon.com
There are so many spaces that Eyelid Movies fits that it is crazy. I feel just as comfortable playing this record as an indie rock spot as I would at a hip hop night. The usage of familiar drum breaks gives it an appeal that will make any b-boy smile, while the instrumentation will definitely bring all the emo to the yard. There are references to Portishead and the like, but I hear J Dilla and Tobacco. It may sound similar to trip-hop, but these guys are showing a bit more range to me. Emotionally, Eyelid Movies covers a lot more ground than Tricky ever has. The range is in the production capabilities though, which I think is the greatest component to this two-piece band.

HASH(0xa684d7e0) out of 5 stars rich textures, very catchy tunes March 27 2010
By Dylan MCNAMEE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I picked this up at my local record shop (!) after hearing it playing over their stereo - and I'm really glad I did. They're definitely influenced by Portishead, New Order, and many others (Mazzy Star and Belly come to mind), but they've also brought a unique glitchy electronica to the mix. The songs that stand out for me are "Mouthful of Diamonds", "You Are The Ocean", and "All Dried Up", but the highlight, which has stuck in my head (very pleasantly) is "When I'm Small" -- a very catchy bass-line, beautiful vocals, and a cinematic feel. All I can say is please, Phantogram; keep making music, and come tour the West Coast!

It seem like these days, it's tough to find good, full-length CD's. Eyelid Movies is good from start to finish and will leave you wanting more at the end. Can't say enough about this CD; 5 stars all the way.

HASH(0xa684da44) out of 5 stars If you like weird hip hop...... April 13 2011
By APOLLOSTEES - Published on Amazon.com

How about a simple review from someone that is not an aspiring writer.....

If I had to categorize this album, I'd call it: hip-hop/alternative-rock. (parts of it even sound like house)
I'm not really into rock, but I am definitely a beat lover/hiphop(not rap) fan.

My favorites are:
Mouthful of Diamonds
Turn it off

I liked:
when I'm small
Running from the cops
As far as I can see
Bloody Palms

If your into Dilla, Hudson Mohawke, Flylo, you will like this album.
