Phosphorescent Interviews via Pitchfork & Line of Best Fit • Misra Reissue of Phos Title for Record Store Day 2013
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.
Time & Breath eat cake.
In recent days, Misra co-founder and Mendoza Line frontman Timothy Bracy, alongside wife and Bird of Youth accordionist Elizabeth Nelson, have duly heartened Grandma via word and sound. The dream twosome have been writing for The Washington Post, NPR, Stereogum, etc. and rocking in a new band called The Paranoid Style.
NPR has been giving a lot of love to our boys in Water Liars as of late. They were first featured on The Austin 100: A SXSW Mix which features “the best music the festival has to offer.” This was followed by a piece on NPR Song Of The Day, wherein Stephen Thompson gives high praise to the band and features standout track “Dog Eaten.”
Water Liars play the Misra SXSW 2012 Showcase at 8 pm this year – Thursday, March 15 @ Frank – 4th & Colorado. Also on the bill are The Black Swans (9 pm), Palomar (10 pm), Southeast Engine (11 pm), R. Ring – featuring The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery (12 am), Seryn (1 am).
