Big Grams – Lights On

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

No doubt about it, one of the most exciting new projects this year is Big Grams (aside from EL VY), which is a super group of sorts combining Big Boi of Outkast fame and the electro-indie duo, Phantogram. There are the two standout tracks and are most likely going to be their singles that they’ll promote for the foreseeable future, the song above and their first single “Fell in the Sun.” Another fun tid-bit is they will be making their live debut at the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, and lucky you, there are still tickets available here!!! So, here’s why you need to drag your butt to SF to see this mashup of indie and pop-rap. If you’ve seen Phantogram live, you probably would venture to say that they tear the house right down. Adding a rapper made famous by songs regarding Polaroids, the smell of farts, and apologizing to the grandmother of your illegitimate baby can only enhance the overall performance factor on all levels!

Giving their new EP a first listen, there definitely is a cohesiveness to it, yet every song sounds so different. Each track has a great balance between the two sounds that the Phantogram and Big Boi bring to the table. It’s absolutely fascinating that something like this has come to be and the only other project that I could say is every bit as much surreal is Run The Jewels’Meow The Jewels” project (listen to that right meow!). So, if you’re down for the sound you’ve become familiar with on previous Phantogram releases, but want a little more edginess, this is your lucky day!

Enjoy,

Phantogram – Black Out Days

Friday, November 1st, 2013

BIG NEWS!!! Phantogram is back in full force. Gearing up for another LP (the first since 2009) and with this being the first new music from them since 2011, you better believe the whole world is stoked (they just don’t know it yet). So what you need to do is get your hands on a digital copy of this track. That means download this some way or stream it and put it on your system in your car. Now drive around a busy area and tell me that you don’t feel like the coolest cat on the block. This song has a sound that is appealing to all who have the chance to overhear it. The Lady Gaga-esque sound and driving bass are radio-ready so catch the wave that is Phantogram before it passes you by. Enjoy!

Phantogram – Don’t Move

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Oh man, file this under “heavy rotation” because this track has such good replay value. Go ahead, try it, it doesn’t get old. Rather, like a fine wine, it only gets better every time. So haunting yet so upbeat, and those horns, I love them. Their whole mini-LP is solid and in addition to “Don’t Move” I’m really feeling “16 Years,” so you should totally check that out too.
