Album Review

After the release of their impressive debut album, Eyelid Movies, in 2010, Phantogram returned with a short but sweet EP, Nightlife, that refined and expanded the duo’s trip-hop shoegaze sound. This time out the band sounds more confident and outward looking, and Sarah Barthel's voice is less of an atmospheric whisper and more of a powerhouse. She sounds particularly good on the glitchy R&B-inspired “Don’t Move” and the late-night ballad “Nightlife.” She and partner Joshua Carter create a very moody, restrained atmosphere throughout, but this time make sure to add lots of hooks to keep the songs from blending into one another. Spiky guitars, glitch manipulations, and punchy beats (especially on the near-industrial “A Dark Tunnel,” which ends the record on a dark note and proves that Carter might be better off keeping clear of the vocal mike) give the record some diversity the debut lacked, without tossing aside the duo’s strengths. Nightlife is a nice reminder that Phantogram are around, making music that is nostalgic but also stands on its own as catchy, moody modern dance-rock.

Customer Reviews


I am surprise there isn't that many reviews on this album, I have been in search of an alternative group that would follow the footsteps of the moog sound greats and as I played and listened to each song in this album I couldn't stop listening and thought that I have finally found one to listen to. There's many bands out there that their sound is so overproduced, it becomes annoying and just a mix of weird sounds. Phantogram has the ability to combined those sounds and turn them in MUSIC, kudos to these two to be able to turn synthetizers in to music instruments as good as a violins or pianos. I just hope this group doesn't go too commercial, in a sense I'm glad not much of their music is being played on the radio. Radio stations ruin true artists. And btw Sarah is HOT

Truly Amazzing

After seeing Phantogram at a music festival a year ago, I really fell in love with "Don't Move"... But now that I have the complete album, I've fallen in love with all of the other songs on "Nightlife"

I just bought this album...

I absolutely love Phantogram. I can’t wait till I have a chance to see you guys in concert. You’re music reminds me of a lot of the music that I listen to, it sounds like a mixture of Metric and M83 (WHICH I THINK IS JUST BRILLIANT). Thanks for all the hard work and I hope you guys keep making music.
