I did not think I’d wake up to new Lorde, The Magician and Phantogram jams this Friday. Even Ice Cube would have to say “today was a good day”. Judging by the amount of plays of the Alan Wilkis’ remix to “Mouthful of Diamonds” has in my iTunes library, it is easy to forget how dark Phantogram can be. New cut “Black Out Days” engulfs the listener’s ear drums with Sarah Barthel’s smoky vocals and a mixture of spiraling bass, reverb and haunting sampling. A “Black Out” could be easily induced after multiple listens.
