At the end of December 2013, Phosphorescent played a four-night stand at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn; and for four-nights running, blew the roof off the place. Matthew Houck, fronting his six-piece band, plus two auxiliary strings players deployed throughout the set, played for more than 10 hours total, all recorded and eventually edited down to the 19 tracks that appear on the new triple gatefold, three-album set, Phosphorescent, Live At The Music Hall. Stream the album in full via:

<< PANDORA >> (North America)
<< PASTE >> (North America)
<< DEEZER >> (UK + Ireland + Latin America)
<< CBC MUSIC >> (Canada)

Pre-order the new album via:
SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

LISTEN // Phosphorescent Shares “Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” Via The FADER, ‘Live At The Music Hall’ Is Out 2/17

This morning The FADER premiered a new track from Phosphorescent‘s upcoming live album Live At The Music Hall. Originally off 2010′s Here’s To Taking It Easy, hear the new live version of “Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” above or here on Soundcloud.

Pre-order the bundle including 3xLP, direct from Dead Oceans, on Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store. Those who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive an instant-grat download of “Nothing Was Stolen.”

On “Nothing Is Stolen (Love Me Foolishly),” Matthew Houck says:

“’Nothing Was Stolen (Love Me Foolishly)” is probably the most straightforward four-on-the-floor-type pop song I’ve got. I wouldn’t have expected it to become a live staple but it has consistently found a spot in the sets over the last couple years.

I think of shows the same way I think of albums in that, ideally, you can establish a world and then create something like a journey within that world. That said, I rarely make set-lists because you never know what kind of vibe the evening might bring. So it’s sort of like sequencing an album in real-time; reacting to the the room and the crowd and the band; and aiming for a nice arc.

Anyway, “Nothing Was Stolen” has established itself as a welcome guest on these journeys. Like an easy-going buddy who pops in and refreshes the party. Maybe lightens the mood if needed. Or maybe focuses the mood if that’s what’s needed.

Also it gives me the chance to give shout-outs to whoever’s gonna take the solos. I enjoy that bit.”

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Phosphorescent Live Album ‘Live At The Music Hall Out 2/17/15, Hear Live Version Of “Los Angeles”




“Playing those four shows, it was clear something special was going on”

-Matthew Houck

This time last year Phosphorescent played a four night series of shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Featuring a seven piece band and a string trio, Matthew Houck performed songs from spanning a decade of his career. Those legendary sets were pared down to 19 distilled beauties that will grace an upcoming three LP set Live At The Music Hall, out February 17th on Dead Oceans. Pitchfork has a preview of the album with a special 10 minute version of Los Angeles that you can listen to above or here on Soundcloud.

Pre-order the bundle including 3xLP, direct from us, on Amazon, iTunes, and your local record store.

More from Houck:
“After eight months of touring, we’d gotten to a really good point where we weren’t quite exhausted yet with the material, but we’d had enough time to really grow with the songs. So we were in that sweet spot where we were pulling something great out of the songs every night.”
