Matthew Houck a.k.a. Phosphorescent is rolling his Muchacho tour into 2014, with the announcement of new dates for January and February. The shows are all US-based and east of the Mississippi River.
Although Muchacho was released in March, the Muchacho Deluxe Version arrived at the end of October. It's being released through his label Dead Oceans, who said it "features bonus material from an intimate pre-release live show recorded at St. Pancras Church in London. The set, performed with Matthew Houck on guitar and Jo Schorrnikow on piano, features Muchacho’s “Song for Zula,” Pride’s “Wolves,” and a cover of Waylon Jennings’ “Storms Never Last.”"
Spacelab writer Jeff Daily reviewed Muchacho, saying "Gorgeous record friends...that's my immediate impression after two times through Muchacho, the latest album by Phosphorescent (Matthew Houck)." He went on to say "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." Read the full Muchacho review.
