Phosphorescent received an 8.8 “Best New Music” rating via Pitchfork for their phenomenal new Muchacho LP today – out 3/19 via the fantastic Dead Oceans imprint. This is great news.

Misra is reissuing the label’s Phos title – Aw Come Aw Wry – on Record Store Day 2013 (April 20). It’s a fabulous collection of songs circa 2005. This will be a unique pressing with a slightly updated jacket and a download which includes the full album + rare live recordings of ACAW songs. The pressing was done by the fine folks at Furnace Manufacturing and sounds tremendous. Furnace’s work is done with great time and care.

Phosphorescent frontman Matthew Houck is a warmhearted, candid fellow.  Houck recently did interviews for Pitchfork and Line of Best Fit in anticipation of his forthcoming Muchacho full-length – out March 19 via the fantastic Dead Oceans imprint. These interviews are two in a long line of recent press, including a spot on NPR’s First Listen and leadoff single “Song for Zula” receiving Best New Track via Pitchfork.

Shortly after the new album’s release, Misra will reissue the label’s Phos title – Aw Come Aw Wry – on Record Store Day 2013 (April 20). It’s a fabulous collection of songs circa 2005. This will be a unique pressing with a slightly updated jacket and a download which includes the full album + rare live recordings of ACAW songs. The pressing was done by the fine folks at Furnace Manufacturing and sounds tremendous. Their work is done with great time and care.
