Atmospheric Electro-Pop: Fall in Love with Phantogram

One of the things I discovered today: my iTunes library contains 15.1 days worth of music. Think I qualify as a little bit obsessed? My favorite recent discovery that’s repeating over my headphones—and I must admit that I’m probably a little late to the party with this one—is Phantogram’s first full-length release Eyelid Movies. This duo— Sarah Barthel (keyboards, vocals) and Joshua Carter (guitar, vocals), both from Saratoga Springs, N.Y.—combines percussive, infectious beats with deliciously seductive vocals to create hypnotic electro-pop that’s as mellow and mysterious as it is danceable. Think The XX but less emo, more complex production level. The singles “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small” are two hauntingly beat-driven tracks that will leave you begging for more and dying to see them live.—Kate Bryan
