HOLOPAW Academy Songs, Volume I: In addition to Holopaw, frontman John Orth was also one half of Ugly Casanova alongside Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock. This is Holopaw’s finest album to date. Released: 01/15/13.
Be on the lookout for releases from The Paranoid Style, Motel Beds, Shearwater, Dignan Porch, and more!
Phosphorescent frontman Matthew Houck has been touring the world, playing late night TV, and selling thousands of records. It’s a wildly exciting time for Phossy.
Along with a full download of the album, Houck and Misra decided to include live recordings with Phos’ Record Store Day reissue download of Aw Come Aw Wry. This was before things started to become insanely busy for the band (he’s opening for Robert Plant… Oh, Holy Night!)
Phos’ full album is included with the download card on the RSD reissue, however, understandably, Matthew had a hard time gathering the live recordings and wasn’t able to get them in on time. In addition, he’s reassembling his studio and says “he hasn’t forgotten.” So, they’ll be here. Thanks for your understanding, your patience and your support of both Phos and Misra. We can’t do this without you.
SHOWS • Centro-matic, Jerry David DeCicca (Black Swans), Monahans, Phosphorescent, Will Johnson, Adam Remnant (Southeast Engine), Emily Rodgers, Shearwater
Lot of Misra shows on the horizon. Offerings from Centro-matic, Jerry David DeCicca (Black Swans), Monahans, Phosphorescent, Will Johnson, Adam Remnant (Southeast Engine), Emily Rodgers, and Shearwater. Dig the atmospheres via the Misra Tour page.
Thank you so much for supporting independent music! We can’t do this without you.
As it is, Matthew Houck — the wonderful & talented frontman for Phosphorescent — got caught up in the band’s recent swarm of road dates and was unable to get the special live recordings to Misra in time for Record Store Day. The live recordings were going to be on the download card alongside a full-download of the album. We are truly sorry about the setback and both Matthew and Misra plan to remedy the situation. Please check back soon.
Again, we are very sorry about this situation and working on a remedy now. Thanks so much for your support of Phossy and Misra! It means so much to us all.
