If you haven’t heard of Phantogram, then I suggest you should quickly do a search for them. They recently released their latest EP Nightlife, which I can’t stop listening to. It’s a very strong EP which one can play over and over again with no fillers. A couple of songs that really stand out to me are “Don’t Move”, “Turning into Stone”, and “Nightlife”. I think those songs show a good range of what type of music this band can turn out. After you check out Nightlife, go and purchase their album Eyelid Movies which was released just last year. I have a good feeling about this band and can’t wait for their next full album release.
The band Memoryhouse has been on heavy rotation, or I should just say repeat playlist on my Itunes lately. Perfect music for the fall.
Who is Memoryhouse? A little excerpt from their site.
Evan Abeele is a musician who takes his inspiration as a student of the neo-classical and modernist modes of the past century. Denise Nouvion is a photographer-videographer who focuses on the blurred boundaries of the moment, of memory, and of what will manifest. With a shared common aesthetic to their creative output, it was only natural for these Ontario artists to collaborate. Their music seeks to render this blending of the contemporary with the forgotten, the traditional and the technological, the visual and the aural, within the sonographic landscapes of pop music.
