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.

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.
