What is the point, in this day and age, of releasing an album in just one country? I refer to this weeks US-only release of the new Phantogram album Voices, while other countries have to wait. Yes, there are obviously ‘other ways’ to get it, but not all of them will support the band I love or should be necessary. It should be as simple as “It’s out, buy and download it here”, especially when all their previous material has been available to buy.
It’s also a shame, because it really is a fantastic album. Four of the eleven tracks were already released on the Phantogram EP (which months later after the US release, has finally been released in the UK this week) but the album has a whole is their strongest yet. I’m finally going to see them live in London on May 13th and can’t wait!
Here’s a taster, the video for ‘Fall in Love’ featuring the art of none other than Mr Praystation Joshua Davis!
