If you haven’t yet heard “Eyelid Moves”, the recently released debut album from Phantogram, then you’re missing out on one of my favorite albums so far this year. The album is a mix of so many different styles that all work together to create one cohesive album thats creative and experimental but still completely accessible. But my favorite on the album is probably “As Far As I Can See”, which starts out with a catchy chopped up sample presumably of a Motown hit. But instead of hearing someone rap over the sample, we get the exact opposite, the soft and enchanting vocals of Sarah Barthel. Though her voice is in stark contrast to the phrenetic sample, the two compliment each other perfectly, just as all of the different songs on the album compliment each other. The band has a few tour dates out west and for SXSW and will be embarking on tour with The Antlers in April. Catch them if you can.
