PHOSPHORESCENT Release New Mp3, New Album Available for Pre-Order

The praise for Phosphorescent’s Here’s To Taking It Easy is pouring in. Taking Mojo’s album of the month honors, the glowing review says that songwriter Matthew Houck, “produces songs that skitter round your peripheral vision, hide in the back of your mind, their outlaw mental state playing hide-and-seek behind classic rock curtains.” Uncut offer equally gushing praise, calling it, “a bold record, steeped in Neil Young’s ‘Doom Trilogy’ and the rich sounds of classic rock.” Q Magazine also joins the fray, calling the album a, “mouthwatering harvest of Gene Clark and Neil Young’s fantasy offspring.”

Here’s To Taking It Easy is due out on May 11 (May 10 in the UK), and we are pleased to offer a second MP3 from the album, “The Mermaid Parade.” This is a song that will make you hit repeat, an absolute stunner. “The Mermaid Parade” is an instant classic.

Stay tuned for an announcement of Phosphorescent’s summer tour plans. You can check out Phosphorescent in New York and Philadelphia the week of release.
