More From Phosphorescent

Yesterday we had Flat Worms, today Phosphorescent. Life can’t be all bad can it?

Matthew Houck recently announced his new album C’est La Vie (out 5th October via Dead Oceans). We’ve already shared the lead single New Birth In New England. Now he has followed it up with the tranquil beauty of pedal steel-laced, slow burner Christmas Down Under.

It’s wonderful. Stream it below. Pre-order the album here.

 

The latest project to involve long standing MM fave James Jackson Toth (aka Wooden Wand), as well as Hans Chew, Nick Mitchell Maiato, Ryan Jewell and Dan Brown, is an album from One Eleven Heavy titled Everything’s Better.

It wonderfully evokes the classic 70s cosmic country of Gram Parsons and The Grateful Dead via their own unique take on that era’s psychedelic jams and gnarly roots rock.

Check out the brilliant Crosses and Old Hope Chest and buy the album from Bandcamp here.

 

 

No less than thirteen corking new tracks this week from the brilliant hypnotic post-punk thrum of FEWS to the infectious indie pop of Hater by way of a Ramones inspired Colleen Green, wiry art-punk from Public Practice, fuzzy urgency from Ron Gallo, raucous arena ready rock from We Were Promised Jetpacks, and sunburnt, pastoral psych from The Smoking Trees.

And lots more besides…

Do we spoil you? Course we bloody do.

  1. FEWS – Business Man
  2. J Mascis – See You At The Movies
  3. The Dodos – Forum
  4. Hater – Fall Off

Ah, the wait is over.

After five long years, Phosphorescent (who topped our Best of the Past Ten Years listings earlier this year) are back with details of a new album C’est La Vie (out on Dead Oceans on the 5th October), and a new single New Birth in New England. There will also be three live dates in the UK in October.

The record chronicles a life-altering period which saw Matthew Houck fall in love, start a family, leave New York, build a studio from the ground up, and battle serious illness. The single is a deceptively breezy snapshot survey of some of those events and is currently on repeat here at MM Towers.

Stream it below. You can pre-order the album here.

 

Catch Phosphorescent live

26 Oct – Liverpool @ Grand Central Hall
28 Oct – Leeds @ Brudenell Social Club

Shimmering psych-pop from Whyte Horses, some charming Syd Barrett inspired bedroom lo-fi from Tiny Eyes, gentle pastoral folk from Queen of the Meadow, rambling, soulful Americana from Valley Maker, vintage outlaw bluegrass country from the Tennessee Stiffs, rural fuzz-folk from Stray Owls, classic indie-pop from Doe, anthemic, heavy duty indie from Tired All The Time, and last, but not least, punk rock fury from Glitoris,
