Maybe we're a bit late in discovering these guys, but it is always wonderful to stumble upon a band like Phosphorescent. Last weekend the one-man band that is Matthew Houck in the studio, became a rocking quintet that just about outdid headliners the Dodos at Union Pool (notice: just about - the Dodos were pretty damn good themselves - so call it a draw). The tunes from that night are undoubtedly swirling in every head that was at Union Pool on Saturday. And I wouldn't be surprised if the band sold out of CD's after the show. It was that good. Passion goes a long way. Matthew Houck has that.
