Phantogram – Mouthful of Diamonds (Alan Wilkis Remix)

Alan Wilkis stripped this Phantogram track of all it’s shoegazyness and replaced it with 80’s synthpop. If you replaced Sarah’s voice with Madonna, I could easily see this along-side some of the greats from “True Blue.” Alan Wilkis pretty much nailed it.

The Monday Set: Phantogram – Los Angeles – 3/4/10

Bordello Bar
Los Angeles, CA

Phantogram came through Los Angeles last week and I got to catch them at one of my favorite venues, Bordello Bar. I was actually pretty shocked that they packed the club. I mistakenly thought I was one of the few people in-the-know about this band. The lucky 200 or so enthusiastic folks who got in were treated to an amazing performance. Do yourself a favor and catch them on this tour because after seeing their performance, I guarantee they will be playing monster-sized venues in the not too distant future.

Phantogram – When I'm Small

It’s too bad I’m not on the east coast because I would be all over seeing these guys on their upcoming February tour. It’s hard to pinpoint Phantogram’s influences since the songs I’ve heard vary pretty widely. With both Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel taking over vocal duties, that only increases the variety in their songwriting style. Look for them to be a nice complement to Minus the Bear in their opening slot.
