P is for Phantogram


Listening to the song “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore”, I would never have guessed this group to be a duo project. It’s fitting that Phantogram is also the name of an optical illusion. And some of the elements of “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” remind me of Celldweller, Klayton’s latest solo project. Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter make amazing music together.



Love Stinks is my fake band honoring the J. Geils Band. My beloved older brother actually attained the nickname ‘Jay’ for reasons I won’t disclose. I lament the singer’s loss. The second tune is the whimsical B-side of “Love Stinks”.

  1. Never heard that first one. Interesting video. And that third narrative... Oh my goodness. I'm reminded of the pass along stories my crazy, creative friends and I would come up with when I was in high school.

  4. Another band I am not familiar with. This old woman needs to get with the times, I think! I loved J Geils, I will really miss his band.

    1. I'm tickled to be your guide. ~grin~ Thanks for the chuckle. And you're reintroducing me to the seventies sound. Nice trade off, I say.

  7. Ah yes, another song that got considerable airplay around these parts. But it was a couple years ago. Good song.

    1. Interesting. We seem to have very different music markets. Then again, I rarely tune into anything but WNKU or alternative rock stations. Be well!

  8. Very cool, that first song. And I'd heard of the J Geils band but didn't really know anything by them. Great stuff!
