(31) Days of Good: Day 28

First up, congrats to my sis!  She’s getting married today and i’m super happy for her.  Second, i’m officially on vacation as I write this and it feels GLORIOUS!  So, in celebration of both occasions, i’ve got two extra good picks for today’s edition of GOOD.  

Phantogram is a “street beat, psych pop” duo from NY.  Although active since 2007, the duo had a big 2010.  Earlier this year, they signed with Barsuk Records and also released their latest, Eyelid Movies, which has been a staple on year end lists this year.
Purchase on iTunes.
Next up, TV on the Radio bandmember/producer Dave Sitek’s solo-side project, Maximum Balloon.  
This record was another favorite of mine and barely missed out on a spot on my top 10 of 2010 list.  The record includes contributions by a ton of guests (pretty much every track), including David Byrne, Karen O, Aku, Theophilus London, and Little Dragon.  There’s really not a bad song on the record, but the Little Dragon collaboration is my personal favorite.
Purchase on iTunes.
Still in need of more GOOD?  35mmBeats has you covered.
