The latest Simple Folk Radio Show which will be first broadcast this Sunday 5th August and will be presented by Daniel Green featuring a live recording of Phosphorescent.
Phosphorescent is the work of Matthew Houck and though this sound is comprised of many voices and musical accompaniments it is Houck who leads this choir.
Like Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billie, Houck’s voice quivers and shakes like a fragile flame. His music is stark and minimal. The production is hollow and there is very little in the way of bass to provide you with any warmth. Periphery noise is often prominent with voices and shuffling creating a sense of emptiness behind Houck’s intimate whispering. These are prayers set to music, some people would call that a hymn but these are more intimate and personal than that. – Chimpomatic
