The male-female duo Phantogram follow a long line of female-fronted electronic pop acts whose stage presence is just as transcendent as the music they create. In this one, lead singer and keyboardist Sara Barthel plays off guitarist Josh Carter’s stoic vibes psych-drenched song after psych-drenched song, their dream-like beats sounding as if they’ve been bouncing off the brick walls of a New York City alleyway and out into the urban soundscape. If you can make the trek to Jersey, see them in action at tonight at Maxwell’s.
