Josh carter sarah barthel dating
Since I started making music, I’ve been influenced by everything from Outkast, The Flaming Lips, Sparklehorse, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth and The Beatles to Wu Tang Clan.
I would just mess around and make whatever I felt like making on a particular day.
Barthel and Carter's label, Republic Records under Universal Music Group, told the band to write as they please and the live show setup would be assembled after the fact.
In order to recreate the as Carter describes "headphone-y" records, they needed to incorporate more live instrumentation, and that's how drummer Chris Carhar and guitarist/synth player Nicholas Shelestak were added into the mix. One of Mary Lucia'a favorite questions to ask bands is, "Who used the tour bus before you?
" to which Carter responded with, "Aerosmith." Looch believed him for a second.
In preparation for the forthcoming full-length, Phantogram are selling their self-titled EP vinyl on tour exclusively.
We can picture Murray as Steve Zissou in “The Life Aquatic,” piloting his submarine. For reference, when writing the song on set list, we would just write “Bill Murray,” because we could picture Bill Murray in some kind of lonely, sad scene in a movie, particularly “Rushmore,” where he jumps off the diving board and sits on the bottom of a swimming pool. What got me into it was when I started Phantogram with Sarah.
While sharing some of his songs with Barthel, Phantogram, then Charlie Everywhere, was born. I taught myself how to play drums, guitar, and piano. I would save up all my money for drum machines and different synthesizers and just became obsessed with recording.
I would just smoke weed and make skits up with my friends or record dumb sh*t or play songs on guitar or songs on piano or make beats.
The full-length's release date has yet to be determined, but from the looks of this session, it's going to be another solid headphone album with a live show to match.
Listen to the whole in-studio session to hear Mary Lucia chat with Phantogram about writing and recording their forthcoming full-length release in a barn, how they came to collaborate with Big Boi of Outkast and to hear the kind words they had to say about The Current.
