Phantogram - Sounds That Grab a Hold of Your Heart in a Beautiful Way

On April 2, I walked into the Mercury Lounge at 8:00 sharp to have a beer and get ready for night of great music. I am not one to come for the headliner, missing the opening acts. Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel are the reason I don’t. They were a most unexpected surprise for me. The sound that started churning and flowing off the stage left me in a trance-like state, ready for the next song, and the next, and the next. They will not stay an opening act for long, and I feel very privileged to talk to them and let them introduce themselves and their music to you.

Josh, Sarah. Thank you for taking the time to chat and shed
some light on what you do and how you do it. I guess first of all, I wanted to ask you about that show at the Merc. The energy just poured from the stage. How did you feel about playing in that venue and the love from the crowd?

We have played at Mercury Lounge a couple of times now. It is a fun venue to play at. W
e had a blast! The audience seemed to enjoy themselves. After each song we played, the crowd response intensified more and more.

I have to ask about how you two came together. Music class? Bulletin board? Afterhours party?

We've been friends for about 12 years. We grew up together in a VERY small town called Greenwich (upstate, new york) We were both raised on small farm houses a few miles from each other. We both moved out of the area for a few years- I went to college to find my "creative niche" and Josh moved to NYC to pursue his goals in being in a band. I came home to discover I was unsatisfied with the direction I was going with my creativity. I decided to study theater and musical theater.... absolutely hated it. Then Josh moved home after his break-up with his previous band...

...we sparked-up our friendship again and started hanging out a lot.

Sarah: He let me listen to some of his short beats and ideas that he had been working on. I thought they were super unique and had a lot of potential to become something and I was instantly inspired to work with him.

Josh: We started making music together. I had an idea of what i wanted to do musically for a few years. After accumulating loads of random sketch ideas on 4-track tape, and eventually digital files (thank you mr. computer), Sarah encouraged me to take some of these ideas more seriously. She helped me finish some ideas. Satisfied with the outcome of these songs, we decided to start a band together.

Your sound is so rich and unique. You two aren’t your average 3-5 piece rock band. It’s part electronica shoegaze throwback, part modern indie rock. You’ve carved out a nice niche for yourself. How did you arrive at this sound?

We don't favor any particular genre of music over another. We love so many different kinds of music, styles, and textures. I think by combining the elements that we enjoy most of certain genres , we have developed our own sound. It's fun to experiment. But, overall, following our emotions has been key. Too much thinking can ruin the flow from your heart.

The path to find this sound was carved out from our influences and visual ideas, I guess. We are inspired by all types of music. - french pop, old soul and doo-wop, classical, jazz, krautrock, hip-hop, indie, electronica - whether it be a simple hand clap pattern from an old Herbie Hancock song or or a gritty analog synth from The Silver Apples, they all have some sort of influence on our music. It has been hard to describe our music to people who haven't heard it. When a stranger asks us what kind of music we make, we refer to it as "STREET BEAT PSYCHE POP"

OAN: Are the songs a total collaborative effort? Do you share in the composition, lyrics and layers like you do on stage? And do you get sick of each other?

It is mostly a collaborative project. A lot of our songs were written together in our rehearsal space, some on our own. Josh writes most of the lyrics with a little help from me here and there. As for us getting sick of each other, oddly enough, we manage to get along great. There are a few minor disagreements here and there, but it amazes me how well we work together.

It depends on the song. Some songs start from a beat that i make that we jam over in our rehearsal space. Some are ideas that were written on guitar or piano by either of us. Sometimes we hum something over and over again until we figure out how to translate it into a song. Not all of the songs are totally collaborative. Of the songs that were created individually, we weed out the ideas that we both agree are good.

Did you have any formal music training? When did you know that this is what you wanted to do? What drives your passion behind the music?

No formal instrument training. I play the piano and am learning to play guitar. I've been singing my entire life. Playing in a band and writing original tunes is something I have always wanted to do. Josh helped inspire me to do so. My passion comes from textures, beauty, and experiences. Creating music motivates me. It is an outlet for my imagination.

Josh: I am self-taught. I grew up in a very musical family. My parents, brother and sister all play instruments. I started playing drums in my late teens and picked up the guitar and piano a bit. My parents bought me a 4-track machine for my 18th birthday, and I became obsessed with making strange textures and writing songs, messing around with loop pedals, drum machines, and whatever instruments i could get my hands on. Music is something that I have to do. It is something that I tend to fixate on at all times. I can't see myself not making music or being creative in some way or another.

OAN: Well, you do it very well. Each song is so unique. The themes are all different. The music is diverse. The pace for each takes puts you in a completely different mind-set from the others. It’s so well thought out. Is this a conscience effort on your part, to make each song an individual journey?

Josh and Sarah: It is not always a conscience effort. Usually what comes out, comes out in our songs. But we try to start off with a fresh canvas for each song. It starts with an idea, then turns into some sort of a theme and works from there. We pull a lot of these ideas from our imaginations, dreams, or past experiences. sometimes we start off by writing a simple melody or beat and visuals come to our heads.. I think the best way to describe this process, is visualizing short stories or films in our minds, and creating the theme of a song around that.

Springboarding off of that question, how do you arrive at a final result? Because again, the sound is so layered, with so many parts that have to work together. What’s the process you work through to create?

From there, they continue to grow and develop their emotion. I like to hear sounds that can grab a hold of your heart in a beautiful way.

OAN: Let’s touch on the lyrics.Many of them are dark, haunting, sad. All of them are moving. Do you write together, drawing on individual experience? Or do you use the outlet to tell a story?

A lot of our lyrics tend to be on the darker or sad side. I suppose that's what comes out the easiest. But we like to offer a bit of hope within our music. Like a light at the end of the tunnel. Generally speaking, our songs are about life and death, love, meaning, existence, pain and joy, isolation, relationships with friends...

...Some of them are driven from personal experience in one way or another. When the lyrics are written, we grab personal experience for the emotional aspect and grab visuals in our imagination the thematic aspect.

OAN: What gets your blood flowing outside of music? What do you do to have fun and unwind.

Hmmm, outside of music. That's a tough question because music is the main reason behind my blood flowing. Comedy would have to be the other reason. Tim and Eric at the moment. They are comedic geniuses. Josh and I spend a lot of time being amused by them in our free time.

Josh, Sarah. I cannot thank you enough for your time. The EP is fantastic and just from personal experience, your fanbase is growing every day. Don’t forget me when you’re famous. (kidding)

Josh and Sarah:
A big big big THANK YOU!!! cheers!

Justin Stivers and his Pet Ghost Project

I'm late. And not happy about it. I've had this day circled on my calendar for a week; a one-on-one with who I consider to be one of the most original composers out there. I actually got off the train and went out to the street to call Justin Stivers at Union Hall to let him know I was late, fully expecting him to reschedule. Lucky for me, he did not.
I set my stuff down, grabbed a beer, and within 10 minutes, the interview turned into a night out just talking to an incredibly humble Mr. Stivers about music, life, and future plans. The way his mind works and how he creates is nothing short of enthralling, and it's easy to see why Pet Ghost Project is being tagged by just about every local press as the band to watch.

From an early age, music is what Justin did. His grandfather was a jazz drummer, and this is how he started his path into creating. A self-taught instrumentalist (aside from a few loathed lessons on bass guitar) Justin grew up in eastern Washington, then spent time in Seattle and Portland crafting his first two albums pushing sonic barriers using everything from the traditional to a recording the chirping of a box of 500 crickets.

His move to New York, coincidentally, was under similar circumstances as my own. Arriving with a single backpack of clothes, he soon connected with Peter Silberman of the Antlers, who he recorded in studio and played with live, as well as The Stoics and Darby Cicci. But he wasn't done with Pet Ghost Project. A rolodex of influences, sounds, ideas, on tape, cd, vinyl and stored inside was ready to come out again. This time in his most recognized collection, "Cheer Up ~ It's Raining."

Justin Stivers is a one-man wrecking crew of sound and composition. Everything you hear from Pet Ghost is him: every sound played, sung, composed and written, then, with the utmost care, pieced together. He creates patterns, moods and waves of emotion through sound. He pushes barriers and knocks down the walls of traditional music. When he composes, he departs, isolates, and let's it all out. On stage, he employs the help of a few friends (Justin Gonzales and Jake More) to churn out a sound more raw, but nonetheless just as powerful, all of them taking turns playing percussion, guitar, bass, keyboards, and still including his trademark effects.

In his upcoming EP (Idiot Brain/Genius Heart, due out May 19), he explores a bit of a darker side. The lyrics flow seamlessly with the sound, filled with ebbs and flows, exploring cobwebbed corners and blinding light with a 5-song assault that feels like 9. It's raw, melodic, relaxed, grinding and reflective. It's the unique sound of Justin Stivers and his Pet Ghost Project.

You can catch Justin and company playing at various venues around New York and the CD release party for Idiot Brain/Genius Heart is May 29 at Fontanas. I'll be there with bells on.

Review: The Veils "Sun Gangs"

Last week I was tapped to write a review of The Veils new LP, "Sun Gangs." It was a most pleasant surprise. This was my review.

Is the mark of a great album one that moves you from song to song, or one that freezes you in place, making you want for it over and over. This was my first thought as I put on “Sun Gangs,” the new LP from The Veils. This is because the lead track, “Sit Down by the Fire,” completely sucked me into an album that I never expected from Finn Andrews. And I was compelled to replay the song at least three times before forcing myself to move on to the rest of the album. I have always liked The Veils, but from afar. Their music has always seemed somewhat inaccessible to me. That is, until now.

What Finn Andrews has done with “Sun Gangs” is invite you into his life. He shares with you his deepest passions and darkest moments through rich composition of keys, strings and percussion. It will take you on a ride from the forlorn (Scarecrow), to the reflective (The House She Lived In,) to the disruptive (Killed by the Boom.) The album runs the gamut of human emotion in 10 songs. There is no mood you can be in where a song from Sun Gangs will not fit. It will reach into your gut and tinker with your heart and soul and mind. In short, it’s an accomplishment. With “Sun Gangs,” Finn will make you feel, not simply on the surface, but deep within.

So, is the mark of a good album one that carries you for a journey on its back, or freezes you in place. In the case of The Veils “Sun Gangs,” it doesn’t matter. The album accomplishes both. And extraordinarily well.

Seeking "Hospice"

About a month ago, I was tapped to write a review of Peter Silberman's Antler's new album "Hospice." It was one of those times when an alum comes into your life at just the right moment. A month later, the album touches my soul deeper with every listen.

In 2006, Peter Silberman, the soul of the Antlers, moved to Manhattan. And disappeared.

For a year and a half, he stayed in his apartment, shutting himself away from friends, family, and life. Then, in 2007, he re-emerged, 21 years-old, free but broken. He wanted to explain his absence to those who cared about him through song. It would take that would take another year and a half to complete. A year and a half worth the wait.

The intention was an explanation, but ultimately, it transcended into a personal memoir, no less than allowing the listener to peer into the mind of a tortured soul, full of dysfunction and isolation, and a reminder never to lose oneself again. It’s a seamless tale of one man conquering his own demons, then bravely putting them out there for everyone to see.
Nothing short of
courageous, the lyrics alone will put this album in most listeners top five for the year. Then add the composition; rich, lush, moody, ambient; none of these words fall far short in describing the range this ballet for your ears accomplishes. There isn’t a single word or a single emotion that can describe it. These aren’t pop singles, this is an orchestrated masterpiece to be listened to as a single movement, each song documenting a moment in time, over a period of time.

Peter Silberman does it better than Ian Curtis, better than Will Sheff, better than Pete Townsend. What he has accomplished with ‘Hospice’ is not just music, it’s something that holds the hand of every one of your senses.
The reason for the album title is easy to see after one listen. It’s a journey, and a refuge. For those of us you have been down the road he traveled, it will be relative and poignant. For those of you who haven’t, it will be insight. For anyone who appreciates music, it will be an experience.

A Chat with Adam Bentley of The Rest

OAN: Adam, thank you so much for taking the time to answer some questions about the slew of projects you have going on. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you and your music over the past weeks and months. I know you’re busy so let’s get to it.

First off, I had a bit of a laugh at your description of the process that went into creating the new work, and I think it deems reha
shing your experience creating “Everyone all at Once” if you would be so kind. There’s woods, lakes, food, alcohol, and a lot of noise involved, if I’m not mistaken.

Adam: Sure, I think I can give a good breakdown of each. I’m not much of an outdoorsman I think I should mention that. So, going up to Anna’s cottage was unlike any cottage I’ve really been to. Most people in Canada that have cottages, well, basically just have another home, except this home has some trees, and a boat. Those were the cottages I was accustom to growing up. At Anna’s you are truly surrounded by the outdoors. Trees never stop; your eyes just aren’t powerful enough to see the end. Or I guess if we were taller, like 20 feet in height you might know where the forest ended, but again that would be a strain on your new enlarged eyes. One lake flows into the next, her cottage is very close to a provincial park (Algonquin) and the similar regularity of lakes can be found around her family’s property. Jordan (multi instrumentalist) is a cook in his day-to-day life, so he really treated us to some fine meals. I sometimes felt bad about him cooking when he was suppose to be getting away from that, but I think he found it much more frustrating watching us try to make something edible. Also, his dishes were so good you didn’t want him to take a break. With alcohol we again find ourselves very lucky because Matty (Bass) makes beer for a living. Each trip we were accompanied with a kegs worth of delicious beer, an IPA one time, a smoked stout another, plus a variety of other great delicious brews. Noise obviously followed from the alcohol, so I don’t really need to go into that, but also when we were experimenting with ideas we’d sometimes make music closer to noise than what we’re known for.

On our second trip up three of us had been working on an idea that required some very specific instrumentation, and about a half an hour in a neighbour showed up. Side note: when I say neighbour, I mean someone who lived a couple of miles away. Anyways, this neighbou
r knew that Anna is quite an accomplished cello player, and was very interested in hearing a song from us. Now we weren’t really prepared to show him anything but the idea we had been working on. What took place must have been of the most confusing circumstances this gentleman had ever seen. We were truly awful, as everyone forgot what they were suppose to play, but we continued to play at a blistering volume until probably 10 minutes went by and we gave up. Now for us this was a worthwhile experiment, but for Tom the Mayor (which we had begun calling him for no reason) this didn’t really jive. His musical experience was playing “big band” music, and since he knew we were a big band I think he had similar expectations. He left quite dumbfounded, but we had a great time.

Were you prepared for the response you’ve gotten from critics, bloggers and the fans (new and old) about the new album? Most everyone that listened or reviewed already has it as a contender for album of the year.

Adam: It really has been overwhelming. I had hoped that this time around we would be able to connect with more people, and I thought we had made a much stronger record, but at the same time it has been almost universal praise so far, which definitely has taken me aback. What was most striking is that the record didn’t even have a release date yet when most people began to pick up on it, so I think we’re very appreciative of everyone that has given the record a chance, and let it grow with them.

If you’d like, talk about the people that went along with you on the journey to create “Everyone All At Once."

Adam: Well there are seven members in The Rest, and we’ve all played together in at least one group prior to the formation over six year ago. I think we all learned how to play music with each other, or if not play, I think expand our idea of what a song could be. I couldn’t imagine taking this journey with anyone else, and I do feel quite; umm blessed I guess is the word, as not many bands stay together for six years, and even fewer when you consider that some of us went to elementary school together. I think we also strove to be a great band, a band that had our own voice/sound, and I think for that reason there’s been more failure than success, and that failure can put a great deal of stress on everyone, but somehow we’ve been able to support each other and get to a place that we’re extremely proud of.

The new album seems like a almost a third iteration of you. There’s a quite a departure, as far as the composition, instrumentation, and lyrics from the debut (Atlantis, Oh Our Saviour) and your other project Allegories (album, “Surreal Auteur”.) Other than your environment, what did you do differently this time?

Adam: "Atlantis, Oh Our Saviour" was a record that came from a band that thought were ready to record a really good record, but soon found out we needed a lot of work. It was however extremely important in our development as a band and I think we ended up with a good record, but more significantly it taught us that we needed to stay hungry and keep growing as musicians. Allegories was originally a way for Jordan and I to explore our experimental side, but as we moved further with the project in started to slide over to more of a pop realm, and in the end it’s somewhere in between. We approach the album as something very self indulgent, but we wanted to make a record that both of us would want to hear. Surreal Auteur is a record I’m extremely proud of, and wished we had more time to give to promote it and play shows, but people still keep finding it, which is quite exciting, because it’s an album that needs to be played over and over again before it true core is revealed. There’s going to be more Allegories this year, with a song released every month starting in July, and I’m really excited to go back to it! Now, I think the biggest difference between Everyone All At Once and the other two records is the importance of song. I think we all realized that we wanted to have very strong foundations before we started to expand on them. I think this opened up melody, and supported more focused ideas that probably weren’t found on previous releases.

Tell me about your background. Did you have any formal music training? When did you know that this is what you wanted to do? What drives your passion behind the music?

Adam: I do not have any formal musical training, and aside from Anna none of us really do. I think for me it’s been a blessing because I let me ears make decisions for me, and not some ingrained theory. For other people (like Anna) that works great, but at this point it’s been helpful to be self-taught. I’ve wanted to play music ever since I was in grade seven. I, to be honest, had no real interest in music beforehand, I was more enamored with sports, but once the bug hit me I’ve been chasing it for years. I actually have trouble understanding why I have thus passion, not just for playing but listening too. I just need it. I think in most people’s lives they have trouble knowing something for sure. Making a final decision. At least I’m that way. There always seems to be some self-doubt. With music I don’t have any. I know I want to play music. I know I need to listen to music. Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t have self-doubt making music because I most certainly do. I just feel I have to make music.

Talk about what having your own label means to having the final product, the pros and cons of self-releasing, especially in a time of such change in the industry, and the age of the digital download.

Adam: Auteur Recordings gives us the freedom to find the scenarios that we feel comfortable in. It doesn’t put us in situation that could be harmful to us making music in the future. However, by doing everything ourselves it’s much more time constraining, and you make a great deal of mistakes along the way, since we’re learning as we go. It also doesn’t have the same exposure or financial backing that an established label can give you. I think we looking into partnering up with people to make those flaws less recognizable, and I’m really excited with the situation we’ve made for us, and hopefully we can keep growing! The more we learn the easier it’s becoming to navigate through the collapsing industry’s potholes.

What, if anything, do you want people to take away from the album? Creating music is such a personal thing, how do you translate it to your audience. Or do you?

Adam:I’m not sure if it’s up to me to decide what people take away from the album. I have my set thoughts on what things mean or why we did something, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the only viewpoint. I hope that people do come away with a reaction, that the music moves them to some opinion. This music is extremely personal, and I hope that it will be given the time to percolate in peoples heads. The album has a bunch of different layers, and like my favourite albums, I hope people find it more interesting as they go along.

OAN: What gets your blood flowing outside of music? What do you do to have fun and unwind. Not that there’s been much of that lately.

Adam: It really hasn’t been much of that lately, music seems to be taking up more time than ever, but one the activities that I’ve been getting into is watching more movies. I recently found the Hamilton Library to have an amazing catalogue of new and old films, and my girlfriend and I have been taking advantage. Also, I have found myself playing sports again. I like it, but I’d much rather tour than play on a team, that’s for sure.

In His Own Words
Notes on three songs from "Everyone All At Once," by Adam:

Blossom Babies Part Two

There’s going to be some talk about this being part two when there’s no part one on the record, but I’m just not fucking around with people, there is a part one and one day hopefully it’ll be on a record. I just ran out of time to finish it for this album.

Sheep In Wolves' Clothing
This was originally intended to be part of Apples & Allergies, but it quickly formed it’s own narrative and structure. I think it’s sometimes looked over because of its brevity, but I’m quite proud of how it turned out.
