Release Date: 5th October 2018
Phosphorescent, aka Matthew Houck, has finally dusted off the old guitar and gathered his merry men for another round of country-twanged, synth-soaked Americana folk-rock after five years! But, as they say - c’est la vie!

"Matthew Houck releases his first album in five years and it’s his seventh. It was recorded at Matthew’s Spirit Sound Studio in Nashville. All encompassing swoops and swooning passes of sound pulsate with throbbing keyboards. Vamping synths back a sobbing heart of a voice. Like country songs from the lonesome prairie spruced up by Ennio Morricone on a synth. An occasional tinge of a Caribbean beach party atmosphere waft by. A hazy phazy swoosh of woozy synths curling and flowing and caressing the melody. And some serious heartbroken guitar shredding sunspots into your vision."
