The Psych-Pop duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel have left their idyllic home base in Saratoga Springs, NY and are currently on tour right now in the U.S., with plans to head off to Europe as well. Having released their first full-length record Eyelid Movies this last month, Phantogram are “already dying to put out another one.” Maybe do a little writing/road testing while you're out there, guys?

Phantogram have very recently signed to the UK-based, electro-sympathetic label BBE records, home to such notable acts as J. Dilla and Notes to Self. In an interview with IYS a while back, Phantogram stated their undying preference in being on a smaller indie label. Said keyboardist Barthel, “Instead of just saying, 'Hey, you want to be number one? We’ll make you number one,' making you change your whole image up and then dumping you just as quick, [indie labels] take care in progressing your career and your music. Indie labels bolster your ability as a musician.” Tour Dates after the jump.
