You don’t have to be a country bumpkin to whisper your pleasure for Phosphorescent. Matthew Houck (the man behind the moniker) has a sold-out banner across his Red Bull Sound Select date, proving those country-twang vocals and lovelorn lyrics have a heavy swoon factor when paired with Houck’s bedroom folk/country arrangements. Phosphorescent may be best known for “Song for Zula,” featured in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but hopefully he’ll play his cover of Arthur Russell’s “You Can Make Me Feel Bad.”
