Phosphorescent

“Song For Zula” Highlights Phosphorescent’s Vintage Cafe


When we heard that Matthew Houck and Phosphorescent might have a new live album coming early in 2015, we thought it was time to give another listen to our 2013 session with the Brooklyn based band. It was recorded right as their album Muchacho was being released. Turns out our session was one of the very first where Matthew's new version of Phosphorescent played together. It contains what became one of the most critically acclaimed songs of 2013, "Song for Zula."

Session Setlist
Terror in the Canyons
Song for Zula
