Matthew Houck, the sharp mind and ragged voice behind Phosphorescent, is back. His recent albums have each been a surprise.  2009′s To Willie was all Willie Nelson covers – which in and of itself wasn’t as surprising as the depth and integrity he brought to what could have been cliché homage. His 2010 outing Here’s to Taking It Easy was more raucous than any critic expected. After Taking It Easy, Phosphorescent did just that. The music world heard little from Matthew Houck until recently. With the release of a new track, “Song for Zola,” from his upcoming album Muchacho, it seems Houck is softening again. He is also back on the road. Houck has an international tour scheduled for the spring and will be playing Johnny Brenda’s on March 25th. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here. Below, listen to “Song of Zola.”
