Phantogram, with Big Boi, on the Tonight Show

What have Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter of Phantogram been up to? Oh, you know, just collaborating with Big Boi.

Phantogram and Big Boi have teamed for a project called Big Grams. They performed "Fell in the Sun" from the project's new EP Thursday night on The Tonight Show. The clip is embedded above.

The trio talked with Pitchfork earlier this month about how their collaboration first came about:

Big Boi: I stumbled upon Phantogram through a pop-up ad on my computer. I was closing out screens and then a pop-up ad came up and it had their song "Mouthful of Diamonds" on it. I Shazamed it and bought it on iTunes, and ended up putting it on my BigBoi.com website as the jam of the week. I guess they caught wind of it and reached out to me. We began a conversation, and they sent me vinyl of their first record. We began to talk then, and was supposed to catch up with them then when I was doing Governors Ball [in New York City] but we kind of just talked on the phone. Then, we crossed paths at Outside Lands Festival out of San Francisco and we hit it off real cool. I invited them back to Stankonia [Studios] and we just started making magical music.

Along with the EP, there's also a Big Grams game -- that's sort of like Super Mario Brothers meets the seven deadly sins.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind.
