Record deal for Phantogram


Sarah Barthel and Joshua Carter

The Saratoga Springs duo announced last night on Twitter that they've signed a US record deal with Seattle label Barsuk. (They had already been signed up with BBE in Europe.) And according to the label's web site, Phantogram's debut album -- Eyelid Movies -- will be released early next February.

Barsuk is a famed indie label. Its roster includes artists such as Deathcab for Cutie, Mates of State, Ra Ra Riot, Rilo Kiley and Nada Surf.

Up next for Phantogram: the CMJ Festival in NYC -- and then a bunch of dates in Europe.

Good for them! They are totally awesome and tour their butts off. I can't wait to get a hold on their first full length album.

Congrats to Phantogram - please please please be "that band" that breaks through nationally!
