Phantogram – Let Me Go


Phantogram is Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter. They first formed in 2007 as “Charlie Everywhere” but changed their name when they signed with a new label in 2009.

They played the forthebeat/ABC News Amplified 2009 CMJ show and we’ve loved them ever since. They haven’t released a record in over a year, with their last one “Eyelid Movies” in Feb. 2009, “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small”  were the two most popular tracks but I’ve overlooked one: “Let Me Go.” Stream below or watch the live KEXP performance:

Phantogram is playing Terminal 5 on February 18th.

Phantogram on Amplified


Another one of the bands that performed at the forthebeat CMJ showcase is up on ABC News Amplified this week.  We teamed up with Dan Harris and his team to bring you We Have Band, Phantogram, Sleigh Bells, X-Wife and Electric Tickle Machine at Public Assembly during the NYC music marathon back in October.  Check out the video interview with Phantogram below, featuring footage from our show.

Phantogram is Saratoga Springs duo Sarah Barthel (vocals, keyboard) and Josh Carter (vocals, guitar).  Their self-titled EP was released last Spring, the band signed with Barsuk Records just prior to CMJ and their first full-length Eyelid Movies was released to critical acclaim this month.

Phantogram – Mouthful of Diamonds


It’s been a week since our showcase, and we’ve finally recovered from CMJ!  The show was amazing.  I spent the day filming with ABC News Amplified, interviewing X-Wife, Phantogram and We Have Band.  Everyone was so amazing and gracious, especially considering they’ve been traveling all around the country and the world, making their way to CMJ, and then continuing on the road.

After the shoots, we headed over to Public Assembly, where our showcase got underway with the aforementioned bands, as well as Sleigh Bells (a huge CMJ breakout), our favorite foursome Electric Tickle Machine, and our resident DJ Heats.  The night rocked thanks to an amazing flow of people and our awesome sponsors, including Tainted Blue Recording Studio, Swagger New York and Et Musique Pour Tous.

So thanks for the support and an extra special thanks to Dan Harris, David Wharton, Jillian Kelleher, Sian-Pierre Regis, Hector Mendoza, Mark Heaton, Rob Loud, Hilary Bonaccorsi, Ian Vens, Shiva Krishna, and to all of our BANDS!

If you had as much fun as we did, and you miss all the bands as much as we do, you might want to download our party playlist here (for the memories).  Also, check out Rob Loud’s pics from the event here.

In addition to the video above, ABC News Amplified filmed the whole night, and will be featuring full-blown video interviews with each band, including snippets from our show, over the coming weeks.  We’ll be sure to keep you posted…
