Do you know that moment when the perfect buzz kicks in?  I mean, that point in an afternoon or evening accompanied by great friends and libations when a couple of drinks are working their way through your bloodstream and suddenly a slightly numbing feeling washes over you – your cares and worries melt away, you feel at peace with the world and you just feel like sitting and watching a sunset, riding out that perfect feeling?

That is what listening to Phantogram is like.

Their first full-length album, “Eyelid Movies” was released in March of this year, and is full of relaxingly sweet, weightlessness-inducing melodies.  Prime examples are the first two tracks, “Mouthful of Diamonds” and “When I’m Small”.  Each has a slightly different feel, but both feature a moody base melody enhanced with soft and sweet vocals, with some synthy texture-adding sub-melodies.
