Matthew Houck has been working under the moniker Phosphorescent for years now, but last year’s release Muchacho felt auspiciously removed from the rest of his expansive discography. Sure, it’s easy to group Houck in with the moderate folk revival that’s sparked amid the early aughts, but it’s the crisp electronic production melded to barren folk song bones that separates him from the flock. Add to that his knack for turning a bone-chilling phrase, and you’ve got the eerie draw of Phosphorescent. Plan to have something akin to a spiritual encounter at this concert, but to leave feeling oddly grounded.
