Biography

Matthew Houck, an Alabama native, now Brooklyn resident, has delivered five albums as Phosphorescent since his 2003 debut. Houck has a highly distinctive artistic voice, but also a refreshing, rolled-sleeves approach to his expression. It was 2007's Pride – a delicate and spare, haunted and haunting work of ragged country, bittersweet southern gospel and forlorn folk-ish drone ... Read more in Amazon's Phosphorescent Store

The high-quality, lo-fi AW COME AW WRY presents a celebration of musical precious metals (brass & steel) and the simple waltz for the 1st half. The 2nd half transports you to an entirely different zone where a droning pump organ and 9 person choir massage your weary brain.

Matthew Houck delivers a Fantasy-Folk masterwork deserving widespread attention which, of course, it will never get. The record comes off as a joyous day-light party followed by a lonely, come-down midnight. As one of many perfect details, Houck saves his only straight-up Folk song ("Endless") for the closer of the LP, and it is a gem and a half.

This album has found a way into my heart with it's noodly pick work on the guitar (folkish) and different sounds throughout the album. Starting off the album with a song called "I am not a heel" you just move through this cd and each song finds itself somewhere within your noggin. I want to say you've got an element of Devendra Banhart here....but this guy, in my estimation is a far greater talent, which says something. Soft, reflective and interesting music done well.

You will hear some horns, some piano and even perhaps a door creak as being a part of this album. This is the kind of music i think people of the sixties could get behind. Lyrically it is strong with well thought out words to go along with the inspired music.

Piano, breaking voices, horns, strings, very Syd Barrettesque vocals. pretty interesting. listen to the demo tracks, well worth your troubles. It's not Sgt. Pepper but it is at least as good as side 4 of the white album.
