Editorial Review

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.
