Apparently this little gem of an album came out on 2/9 but no one told me. Not even Pitchfork. I just accidentally ran across it last night and have been listening to it since.

At any rate, the duo is from the unlikely hotbed of rockin' Saratoga Springs in upstate NY and to me they sound like the XX if the XX left the house more often. They've got very similar lilting guitar lines, heavy electro influences and the indie vocals and all that but with a bit more oomph.

This vid's a little weird but you'll get the idea.

Phantogram - Mouthful Of Diamonds from Drew Norton on Vimeo.

It's available wherever you buy/steal music.

Enjoy the weekend!
