2011 effort from NY-based duo Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel (aka Phantogram). Nightlife came in after their much lauded full length debut Eyelid Movies and continues the outstanding electronic indie pop vibe presented on their previous releases. Some would compare them to a modern dat "HGSOB" (like a pop-ier Portishead?), but regardless of what you want to call it, the bottom line is that this stuff is infectious and will easily garner repeat listens on the headphones. Check "16 Years(1)," "Don't Move(2)," "Turning Into Stone(3)," "Nightlife(4)," and "A Dark Tunnel(5)." Recommended.
