With his sixth album Muchacho, Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent creates a somber sound overflowing with what seems like drunken rambles.
He knits together violins and pianos that mingle with electronic beats as in the first track “Sun, Arise!”
Houck conveys beautiful lyrics with a defeated voice, sweetened by his original country-esque style. The elements of each song string together and form a sad story.
