Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck Once Thought The Songs on Muchacho Were Too Personal

June 24, 2013 - It is easy to hear the steady growth in the music of Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck since his 2009 Willie Nelson tribute album. His last album, 2011’s Here’s To Taking It Easy, was a sprawling, languorous, epic written with his road band’s performances in mind.
XPN featured Phosphorescent's sixth album Muchacho as the Album of the Week because it is " the best work of Matthew Houck's career." Listeners can expect a combination of charming tunes and heart-wrenching tunes from this American singer-songwriter.
A perfect starting point for new fans. Muchacho is somewhat of a departure for Phosphorescent. But it also is an introduction, and the best work of Matthew Houck's career.
