SXSW Artist: Phosphorescent / Song For Zula

Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck is a man after my own heart. His 2009 album, Tophosphorescent Willie, is a tribute to my absolute favorite larger-than-life human, Willie Nelson. In addition to him recognizing the magic of Willie Nelson, he’s created a song that absolutely lifts me out of my boots and rockets me into the clouds. The song below.
Get a load of these heartbreaking lyrics:

Some say love is a burning thing
That it makes a fiery ring
Oh but I know love as a fading thing
Just as fickle as a feather in a stream
See, honey, I saw love. You see, it came to me
It put its face up to my face so I could see
Yeah then I saw love disfigure me
Into something I am not recognizing

–Um, holy shit. What a mouthful of _____ that is.

He’s playing SXSW this year, sure to gain some new followers and recognition.
