I’ve been appreciating Phosphorescent for a while now, since I met songwriter Matthew Houck at my friend’s house in the summer of 2007, where he played a cozy show for us in a living room that smelled like reefer and cookies.

I just read that Phosphorescent is one of the most blogged about musicians, somewhere between M.I.A. and Caribou, according to the The Hype Machine aggregator anyway. I figured I’d give him a bump.
Phosphorescent’s new album, Here’s To Taking It Easy is due out on May 11. Here’s a twinkling jangle of single off it, called “The Mermaid Parade.”
