Live At The Music Hall by Phosphorescent

From RNZ Music, 7:30 pm on 28 April 2015

Nick Bollinger reviews an epic live set from indie roots rockers Phosphorescent

Phosphorescence Live at the Music HallEveryone was doing it in the 70s, but who nowadays would put out a live, three-disc set? Well, Matthew Houck a.k.a. Phosphorescent has – at least it’s three discs if you go for vinyl, two on CD. Houck’s roots are traditional and lean towards country rock, though his Willie Nelson tribute is the only album in his catalogue that isn’t touched on in this expansive career overview.

Songs Featured: Dead Heart, Los Angeles, Terror In The Canyons, Joe Tex These Taming Blues, Ride On/Right On, A New Anhedonia, Wolves
