The long-awaited Phantogram album Voices is now available to stream in full, in all of its bombastic, synthtastic and electro indie pop glory: Voices is available as a full album stream from NPR Music.
It's been a long time since we've heard new music from Phantogram -- the ultra cool duo from New York state that dropped out of the sky in 2009 with a new sound that combined hip hop, dream pop and indie pop in a very unique way. Sure, they had collaborations with Flaming Lips, Big Boi and others (and a small EP last year), but their best music always came from themselves.
Check out "Blackout Days," the first new single from the music that's been percolating for years with Phantogram as they've ridden the indie success roller coaster.
NPR Music is completely won over by the album, saying: "Even a sullen ballad like "Bill Murray" is fueled by a low, churning buzz, yet Barthel still infuses the darkest and most driving Phantogram songs with warmth, mystery and sinewy, sinister style. The Saratoga Springs, N.Y., duo has spent the last four or five years bubbling up, and it's never sounded more current; it helps that the duo has suddenly turned up in commercials and on high-profile movie soundtracks, to the point where you couldn't avoid Phantogram's music if you wanted to."
