Buzzing for Phantogram

Sarah and Josh playing a show sponsored by IFC at SXSW.

Phantogram was one of the most buzzed-about bands during SXSW Music week, according a stats service called Next Big Sound. (NBS appears to track sites like MySpace and Facebook for plays and, uh, fan-ing.)

Also, USA Today's Whitney Matheson said one of Phantogram's shows at the festival was among the top 10 performances she saw this year (there was also something about a guy wearing a wolf's head). And Austinist said Phantogram was one of five bands "you have to see."

A few other bits: The LAT music blog talked with the Saratoga Springs duo about the recording of Eyelid Movies. And Sarah and Josh told Spinner that one of their musical guilty pleasures is Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA."

... I'm not saying I don't want this area developed, I do. I just want it done the right way and frankly I don't care if that means there's a big gaping hole at that corner for years. The hard part was getting rid of that eyesore of a city hall in the first place and that's done. We already backed out of one deal, there's no shame in backing out of another or putting the sale on hold until all the appropriate questions are asked and answered. ...
