Vinyl love: Phosphorescent “Muchacho”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Phosphorescent
Album Title: Muchacho
Year released: 2013
Details: Gatefold cover

The skinny: If you’ve not heard the song below, do yourself a big favour and press play on the YouTube clip below. This was my introduction to the world of Matthew Houck and his work under the nom de plume, Phosphorescent. He changed his sound up pretty big for this, his sixth studio album, creating a whole world of sound for us to dive into. It’s now been five long years of waiting but he’s finally coming out with a new album in October and I can’t wait to hear it.

Standout track: “Song for Zula”

Cool! I saw Phosphorescent when he was on tour for this album a bunch of years ago. It was a short but excellent set. I feel like the new album may have fewer nipples though.

I love this one. Beautiful album. In fact, I’m gonna play it now.

Have you heard the live album? I was tempted to pick that up… I believe it’s a triple.
