New Music: The Phantom Band

Recorded in Glasgow at Chem 19 and then in Franz Ferdinand’s Govan facility, The Phantom Band’s latest album, Checkmate Savage, features Paul Savage of The Delgados as producer, engineer, and guiding force. The recording sessions were like their early jams: long, meandering and experimental; the band beating out rhythms on broken wood blocks and organist Andy’s ‘shelvaphones’, a home-made instrument created from metal shelf brackets.
