♫ Phantogram – Mouthful Of Diamonds

TBE reader Jeff turned me on to Phantogram when he dropped his Top 10 list in the comments of my Top Songs post. “Mouthful Of Diamonds” immediately began noodling it’s way into my brain with it’s spacey trip-pop vibe and soothing female vocals. Eager to see what the rest of this Saratoga Springs, NY, duo had to offer I bought Eyelid Movies and was a bit disappointed. “Mouthful of Diamonds” opens the album with such beauty that it’s hard for me to not feel like I’m coasting downhill after this kind high. I always feel weird writing about an album when I only like 1 or 2 songs and when I saw Pitchfork give the album a 7.5 I thought maybe Jeff also had stronger feelings for the album and would want to rave about it for you. Only confirming my appreciation for the guy, he replied that he felt the same way as I did about the album (except for his love for “When I’m Small,” as well). Anyway, the point is that Jeff and I love “Mothful Of Diamonds,” Pitchfork loves the whole album, and who knows what you will think. I’d recommend poking around Phantogram’s MySpace before you drop coin.
