Muchacho by Phosphorescent
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Dead Oceans
After taking an extended sojourn through the American South with both To Willie (2009) and Here's to Taking It Easy (2010), Phosphorescent main man Matthew Houck returns with a more straightforward indie pop style. Muchacho opens with an electro-folk number ("Sun, Arise!") that sounds like Fleet Foxes meets My Morning Jacket. This gives way to "Song for Zula" and "Ride On/Right On," both of which possess a "new pop" vibe seemingly inspired by Springsteen's Tunnel of Love period. Towards album's end Houck proves he's not totally over country music with the gracefully swaying "Down to Go."
