WATCH // Phosphorescent Performs Two Songs For Le Cargo Sessions

Enjoy a Friday treat with Phosphorescent who performs “A New Anhedonia” and “Down To Go” off his album Muchacho. Thanks to French music webzine Le Cargo for recording these beautiful and haunting sessions!

Phosphorescent is on tour now starting with an appearance in McCarren Park in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival tomorrow night with dates on through late November. Check all the tour dates HERE.

Phosphorescent Brings “Song for Zula” With Strings and Swagger to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

 

Phosphorescent brought a transcendent performance of Muchacho‘s breakout hit “Song for Zula” to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. The touring band was joined by a string section – making an already special rendition even more gorgeous. Grab a handkerchief and enjoy a good cry. This is television magic, people!

Also just in: a new feature about Phosphorescent at Urban Outfitters! And a word to you New Yorkers: go see Phosphorescent at the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival on Saturday night. It’ll be a Dessner-approved good time.

WATCH // Night Beds Perform Live for Lawrence High School’s Film & Media Series

Night Beds stopped by Room 125 at Lawrence High School for a another beautiful live session (aren’t they all, really?) and interview. It’s all for an ongoing project film & media students started awhile ago. You can watch “Lost Springs” and “Was I For You?” in our Youtube playlist above. I personally recommend paying special attention to the 1:50 mark in “Was I For You”; Winston and Caleb work some special harmonizing magic. Siggghhhh.

Did you see Winston on Rachael Ray earlier this week? SPIN certainly did, which means you probably should too….fast forward to the 3:40 mark and open your eyes.

Happy Friday // Phosphorescent Performs “Song For Zula” Live at John Varvatos

What better way to spend your Friday than enjoying a video of Phosphorescent playing “Song For Zula”? We cannot think of one. Tis the first single from the forthcoming album, Muchacho, out March 19. The live performance took place at John Varvatos Bowery, which used to be CBGB (COOL!!). Watch above!

In case you forgot, Phosphorescent is headed out on tour in support of the new record this March! See all the dates and ticket links HERE.
