The Saratoga Springs, NY duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, known collectively as Phantogram, unveiled their new three-piece live performance lineup last night in New York, where they supported their friends Ra Ra Riot at a sold-out Bowery Ballroom show. For the first time since the release of their debut LP Eyelid Movies on Barsuk Records earlier this year, Carter and Barthel are now being joined on stage by Tim Oakley (The Mathematicians) on drums, samples, and Akai MPC.

Tonight in Boston, the three begin their headlining tour across the country with Josiah Wolf of Why? supporting.  It includes stops at Treasure Island Festival and Filter’s Culture Collide Fest in LA.

Local Natives Hit AOL Interface, Remixes Start Pouring In

July 6, 2010 Artist News No Comments

The praise being bestowed upon LA’s Local Natives is thanks, in large part, to the gloriously arranged harmonies and relentless energy that propels Gorilla Manor to places like the #11 spot on NPR’s recently-released Best of 2010 reader’s poll. The rest of the thanks is owed to the band’s stage show, an imposing wall of voices, sweat and roiling vigor. You can hear and see a bit of both on the band’s recent stop in AOL’s LA offices, where the Natives tore through characteristically emphatic renditions of Manor faves “Sun Hands,” “Airplanes,” “World News” and “Wide Eyes.” The performances are available to watch, embed or download over on AOL Spinner.
