It's telling that New York duo Phantogram (and that's Saratoga Springs, not Brooklyn, thank you very much) ended up on Barsuk Records. That label is best known as the one-time home of Death Cab For Cutie, and its roster is filled with bands that deal with the same sort of spacious, dreamy tunes. Phantogram doesn't use textured guitars -- it's all electronics, sedate loops, some shoegaze influences -- but the end result is the same sort of melancholy. Junk Culture opens at DC9.
