Phosphorescent - Wolves

I've been kicking myself for missing Phosphorescent, who did an early show in Whelans last week on the same night as Why?
Phosphorescent is Matthew Houck from Atlanta, Georgia and toward the end of last year, the album Pride was released - I have only recently stumbled across it. If you have heard it already, that's great but if not, then this is one of the standout tracks. The Will Oldham comparisons are fair, but Houck brings his own slant too, as he overdubs his voice and layers many instruments on the excellent album. Enjoy.
