Review by John Noyd
March 2014

While nearly five years have passed since their last full-length, Phantogram has managed to seep into the public consciousness with several EPs and big-name side-projects insuring their star would not fade but rather slowly glow; which serves as a beautifully appropriate metaphor for the duo’s incandescent, glitch-ticking time-bomb sound. Nocturnal infernos cured in stirring grandeur and swarming in beehive hard-drives, “Voices,” foist industrial buzz onto hip-hop beats; driving writhing dystopian discos layered with textured guitar, narcoleptic menace and chattering backing to elicit a dark, dreamy pop that sparkles and sizzles as earnest yearning buoys desolate messages. Fleshing out their electrifying live show with drummer Chris Carhart and keyboardist Nick Shelestak, the expanded band plays Milwaukee’s Pabst Theater April 11th and Madison’s Majestic Theater April 12th.
