Bruce Springsteen Reborn???
Ok, well that is a bit of a lie isn’t it? The Boss isn’t even dead.
I couldn’t help thinking that I was hearing an undiscovered Bruce Springsteen track the first time I heard the Brooklyn-based indie folk artist Matthew Houck.
Originally from Alabama, Houck goes by the name “Phosphorescent” on stage and he has a terrific catalog of music already (how did this guys music slip past the radar?!?). As I went through the Phosphorescent discography it was just one great song after another. “Wolves,” “The Mermaid Parade,” “It’s Hard To Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama)”
Then I realized that Phosphorescent is gearing up to release a new album called “Muchacho” and I was glad to know that I wouldn’t let this guy slip by the radar this time.
The first single off the album is named “Song for Zula” and as you might of guessed, it’s a love song. A heartbreaking masterpiece of a love song. Don’t be fooled by its gentle delivery, the song comes from someones heart that has been torn by love.
