It’s a splendid Friday for fans of Phantogram like me. Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter have surprised us with two new tracks, one an original, one a Sparklehorse cover. All proceeds from the new two-track single go to a very good cause, one that’s far too relevant lately considering all the dear people we’ve been losing, both in our personal lives and within the music scene. The single benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). For Sarah Barthel, who lost her own sister to suicide back in 2016, this is all too personal. Steam new song Someday above, which sees the typically trip hop and electro-rock duo go a dreamy meditative route. Their gorgeous cover of Sparklehorse’s Saturday can be streamed below.

Zachary Cole Smith, the musician best known for his role as frontman of NYC shoegaze and indie rock outfit DIIV, has unveiled a gorgeous cover of Sparklehorse’s Cow. This reedy melting, steely strumming rendition of the 90′s song seems to bring out the song’s melancholic dysphoria even more. The cover was released to promote the MTV Unplugged acoustic concert DIIV will be playing in Brooklyn next month. By the way Smith’s Cow sounds, whoever’s in the live audience for that show will be in for something magical and possibly life changing.
