Saratoga, New York duo Phantogram have a big year ahead of them. Their debut, Eyelid Movies, comes out on Barsuk (and on Ghostly, exclusively on vinyl + download) on February 23rd, and it’s a winner—a nightmarish, beats-and-samples take on dream pop that draws from Blonde Redhead and the Wu-Tang Clan in equal measure.

For now, the pair is going on tour, logging dates on the East Coast, in the Midwest, and in Canada in support of the aforementioned record. Check out the dates here, and watch a live performance of their song “Mouth Full of Diamonds” from their recent KEXP session above.
