EDITORS’ NOTES

Live at the Music Hall is the result of Phosphorescent’s four-night stand at the Music Hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in December 2013. The seven-piece band were wrapping up a year of supporting their Muchacho album. Like most road-worn groups, they’d seen the material grow as the nights piled up. In the tradition of double-live albums from the ‘70s, Music Hall is a three-album set that encompasses all four of the band’s studio albums, highlighting the ragged-but-right vocals of leader-songwriter Matthew Houck and the atmospheric brilliance of pedal steel guitarist Ricky Ray Jackson.

About Phosphorescent

Athens, Georgia resident Matthew Houck is the sole member of Phosphorescent. Houck's career began in 2000 when he released the Hipolit album under the name Fillup Shack. A tour of England and Spain followed, and while the European press drew comparisons to Bob Dylan and Will Oldham, The London Evening Standard declared him "the most significant American in his field since Kurt Cobain." Houck's first release as Phosphorescent, entitled A Hundred Times or More, appeared in 2003 on the Warm label. The 2004 EP The Weight of Flight was his last release for the label, as the 2005 full-length Aw Come Aw Wry landed on Misra. Two years later the release of Pride began a relationship with the Dead Oceans imprint. To Willie, Phosphorescent's tribute to Willie Nelson, arrived in early 2009, followed by the all-new Here's to Taking It Easy in 2010. In 2013, after extensive international touring, Houck released his sixth album, Muchacho, returning somewhat to the more experimental textures of Pride. A massive tour in support of Muchacho ended with a stint at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg, and recordings from the various nights were compiled onto the band's sprawling live album Live at the Music Hall, released in early 2015. ~ David Jeffries
