Phantogram sounds like a band from the city. Electronic loops, hip-hop beats, shoegaze, soul, pop -- each finds its way into their songs. Unexpectedly, the band doesn't hail from a metropolis, but rather calls the town of Saratoga Springs, NY (population 26,186) home. Most people there, other than maybe some students at local Skidmore College (where fellow beat-experimenters Ratatat formed), have never heard of J. Dilla, My Bloody Valentine, or Serge Gainsbourg.
