Phosphorescent performed the song “Song for Zula” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, off of the album Muchacho. Spacelab writer Jeff Daily reviewed the album Muchacho, saying "Gorgeous record friends...that's my immediate impression after two times through Muchacho, the latest album by Phosphorescent (Matthew Houck). The record has it all, country-rock, folk-pop, psychedelic sing-alongs, and many more signifiers that don't require hyphens. Let me put it this way, Muchacho is a good way to kick-off spring. " Check out the full review.
After Matthew Houck completed his tour of Here's To Taking It Easy in 2011, he set out to do two things: not do the album / tour cycle right away and move in a different direction and creative process for the next album. Instead of writing songs, he started making sounds. "They weren't songs, they were just strange sound pieces. I've always had that element in my work, and one or two weird, ambient pieces seem to squeeze themselves onto every record, but suddenly I was doing a lot of those."
