Eyelid Movies out today

Phantogram's Eyelid Movies coverPhantogram's first full-length album, Eyelid Movies, is out today in the US.

To mark the occasion, Matthew Loiacono's posted an account of the Saratoga Springs duo's beginning -- including the story of how one of the best songs on Eyelid Movies was almost lost to red wine.

Also: Paste has a kind of silly Q&A with Sarah and Josh (it also tags them as "best of what's next"). [via @thehiddencity]

Also also: A review for Spin calls Eyelid Movies "often gorgeous and never soothing."

Also also also: The whole album is still available for streaming from NPR It seems that NPR stream has now ended. You might try Lala. If you haven't heard the album, yet, you should have a listen -- it's good.


I've been so jazzed about this since AOA introduced me to this band. I can't wait! I may have to go to the mall...

Just checked First Listen on NPR and it has been disabled ---

Editors: Alas. Thanks for the update.
