A set of dark, meditative songs that's all the more spiritual sounding for its restrained tone. These are poems uttered in an empty field, punctuated by shouts and hollers, as if from a singer either abandoned or possessed. The lyrics are Matthew Houck's strongest ever, wrapped in washed out choral etudes that could be channeled from a rural French chapel or a solemn African tribe in prayer.

Me sitting in my cube listening to this band after a quick and cheap download from amazon is the culmination of the internet. I'm shedding tears of pure joy right now. I had never heard of this band before yesterday. And today, I'm adding Matthew Houck and his lovely troupe to my top 5 bands of the year. Its only March, too.
Aside from putting on a helluva show, the music captures the spirit of the live music. Often times when I buy the album after a great live concert, I'm disappointed by it losing the "live" feel. However, the production and sound of this album Pride is so spot on, that its been on repeat for the last 8 hours. I wish I could hear the 12 minute rendition of wolves again, but now I understand the inspiration of it in its 6 minute cd version.
To those of you who have never ventured out of your comfort zone to buy a cd you may or may not like, please take a plunge with this band. They have a lot to live up too as I'm looking to fill the void of Jason Lytle of Grandaddy refusing to put out another album. You can listen to the words or use it as background music to impress your date. Its driving music, thinking music, and listening music. This album is a success. I don't normally buy an album without more research and when I do I normally regret it. Not this time. For once, my gamble has paid off.
I wish I could be more specific about the album, but I only know that I haven't been this excited about a band in a long long time. Another review describes the simplicity of the album. I can agree. Its as if the animal collective, after a long night on LSD, decided to take special k to come down. And somewhere in that long trip down, Phosphorescent showed up.
