Phosphorescent, Strand of Oaks

“See I was slow to understand/ This river’s bigger than I am/ It’s running faster than I can, though Lord I tried,” sings Matthew Houck on “Muchacho’s Tune.” This line underscores the theme of redemption—highlighted by Houck’s fragile voice, often prone to breaking and trembling—within Phosphorescent’s spectacular sixth album, Muchacho. Behind Houck sits near-transcendental soundscapes, fitting the bard’s mood. This follow-up that almost wasn’t to be because of Houck’s exhaustion after his most recent tour cycle is one of the best thus far in 2013—it’s delightful, sincere and near-tragic. $12 in advance, $14 day of show
