The wait is over. Phosphorescent’s new album Here’s To Taking It Easy
is in stores around the world today. Rather than spewing our own hyperbole all over this classic record, we’ll let some fine journalists do the talking. Mojo anointed it as album of the month, stating 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.” Paste Magazine recently discussed Here’s To Taking It Easy
with Phosphorescent, and said that, “it’s got grooves deep enough to hide in and songs that stretch out like horizon-bound highways, an album both sunburned surfers and leather-clad bikers can enjoy.” Don’t believe us? Download “The Mermaid Parade
” and “It’s Hard to be Humble (When You’re From Alabama
” and listen for yourself.
