I’m always interested in what Phantogram do. Their sample heavy music always hits out of left field and “Fall In Love” is no exception. The sped up and reversed samples make for a very big intro that drop into the background when Sarah Barthel’s vocals kick in. Its an electronic hip hop mesh that works completely, if you added a bit more soul you could imagine this on a Jay-Z album, but as it is its pretty great already.
Big Boi is firing on all cylinders for the release of his latest album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours (due December 11th) and here is an excellent taster “Lines” featuring stellar bars from A$AP Rocky and Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel on the hook. It’s a delicious mix.
I know, I know…I haven’t been around that much lately, lets blame the festive season and fuzzy heads. Hopefully I’m back now and in the next coming weeks I’ll be throwing in my best of 2011, what I’m looking forward to in 2012 and just good freaking music, as always.
Lets start this off right though with RAC’s 2011 remix. Every year Hype Machine put together their zeitgeist ish of the year (songs, albums, artists and what have you) and they also get some lovely people to mash up all these things together in a downloadable remix session. This year they’ve got Odd Future, The Go! Team, Jensen Sportag and RAC doing wondeful remixes. I’m staying loyal to one of my favourite remix artists out there RAC and throwing their amazing 2011 Music Blog Zeitgeist Mix up.
Sampling the hot new Phantogram track Don’t Move, E-Dubble gives us another dope and FREE track to download, Fight For Days. Edubs never disappoints, so download it and support the hardest working guy in hip hop.
After getting super excited about the Nightlife LP, the lovely Phantogram are giving us a preview of the new album over at their facebook page where you can stream a mini Nightlife EP. Earlier today, they gave us another track Nightlife from the upcoming album of the same name, out November 1. If Don’t Move was in the thick of things, this new track is an introspective step back. Check it out and stream the mini album here.
“If I crave drama I’ll read up on Macbeth…middle finger up, with my feet up on the desk”
This is the first introduction to New York rapper Anthem that I’ve had, and what an introduction. Spitting witty, insightful rhymes over Phantogram’s newest one Don’t Move, Anthem is getting people excited. His upcoming EP will be out soon, sponsored by our friends over at Sunset In The Rearview.
New things from this New York duo, Don’t Move from the new album Nightlife which you can pre-order here. Don’t Move is sample heavy and excellent, its lovely to hear new stuff from them especially as I’ve been playing When I’m Small a lot recently (that drop after the intro, oh my).
We love Phantogram’s When I’m Small so we thought we’d throw it up. Formed in New York in 2007 this indie/electronic duo have caught the attention of all the right people and toured with Yeasayer, The Antlers, Metric, Beach House, The xx, Zero 7 and Ra Ra Riot. So if you like any of them (and that’s quite a range) chances are you’re going to like a bit of Phantogram.
