Phantogram have been behaving more like phantoms than mere optical illusions as of late. And as they should. Since duo Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter—the true pride of Saratoga Springs, New York—graced us with their glorious debut last year, it's been difficult to ignore the pawing for more. But Eyelid Movies has more than sufficed for the wait, with its stirring compendium of tinny hiphop beats, fragrant synths, and astral walls of sound, all perfectly combining beneath the rising steam of Barthel's lithe vocals. There has been no official fanfare yet, but the band has cast out plenty of internet allusions to work on a sophomore release, and hopefully this show will contain some of the new gems birthed out in the barn (which, of course, refers to their Harmony Lodge studio, a rickety old thing teeming with musical machinery further upstate).
