FILTER’s Top 10 of 2011: Phantogram

After the release of their 2010 debut LP, Eyelid Movies, Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter spent the whole of their 2011 touring far and wide across the globe, hitting up numerous festivals both here and abroad—including FILTER's very own Culture Collide in October. All that touring must have sparked some serious inspiration, and the band found time to writea "mini-LP" of songs  tht was released at the end of the year, entitled Nightlife. Due for a nice break of rest and relaxation, the electronic duo still amde time to give us their top records of 2011, graciously splitting the top 10 into two top 5s.
