I haven’t heard much from Phantom Planet in a while, so I wondered what they had been up to. Now they have a new album coming out, Raise the Dead, but something else has been keeping Alex busy. Black Black is Alex’s other band project with his girlfriend Diva Dompe, and her younger sister Lola. I LOVE their stage costumes and sets. It must be so much fun to be in this band and dress up all the time and play music. Things like this can make live performances so much more fun, much like a Flaming Lips show, although this has quiet a different feel. Their music has a quality to it that feels cute, dark and otherworldly all at once. If you live in LA you have no excuse not to check them out.
