Phosphorescent - Here's To Taking It Easy -2010-
(Folk, Rock, Country)

From: Brooklyn, New York

Phosphorescent is the solo project of Brooklyn based musician Matthew Houck. Phosphorescent has been kicking around the alt-country universe for quite awhile now, effecting a downbeat mix of plaintive howling and stirring atmospherics which has drawn comparisons from Neil Young to Wilco. Here's To Taking it Easy is Phosphorescent’s first set of original material since 2007’s dark, deeply moving Pride. On Pride, Houck played nearly all of the instruments himself, creating a habitat of a beautiful, loneliness. However, a different mood is present on Here’s To Taking It Easy, as Phosphorescent’s touring band have come on board for the recording, and the influence of boozy classic rock is as apparent as that of forlorn singer-songwriters. This is music for any time and any season.
