5.0 out of 5 stars The Alternative/Indie Folk artist's unique and fascinating sixth album, 2 Nov 2013
This review is from: Muchacho (Audio CD)
American Lo-Fi Indie Rock act Phosphorescent (a.k.a. Matthew Houck) released his sixth studio album, Muchacho, to widespread critical acclaim. Produced by Matthew Houck and largely recorded by him and a few key session players, Muchacho was conceived, when the singer/songwriter isolated himself in a small community in Mexico (due to mental and physical exhaustion after a tour in support of his previous album, Here's To Taking It Easy). Muchacho took shape, as Matthew Houck went on solitary walks in the woods and swam in the lakes. The rollicking 1970s Country-Rock of Here's To Taking It Easy (think Willie Nelson and early Eagles) still permeates much of Muchacho, but the singer/songwriter has added an unorthodox element in the shape of electronic instrumentation. While this unlikely marriage initially seems like an odd combination, it actually works and makes for a fascinating, creative and distinguished album.Skillfully written, arranged, recorded, produced and engineered, Phosphorescent's Matthew Houck is an extremely talented singer, songwriter and musician with impeccable taste and an impressive attention to detail.
