Phantogram+Light Pollution

by

Between Sleigh Bells, Javelin, These Are Powers, and now Saratoga Springs duo Phantogram, New York in 2010 is starting to look like Bristol in 1994—lots of rockcentric art-fucks doing smart, comforting recontextualizations of hip-hop in a way that’s kind of irresistible. Phantogram mixes a little bit of 4AD dream pop in with their Dilla-fried beats, resulting in a happy medium between head-knock and head-rush. With Chicago bliss-poppers Light Pollution.
