Description

The first new Phosphorescent album in 5 years. Matthew Houck's most grand and varied album to date. This record will delight old Phosphorescent fans but find a brand new audience for his unique take on wild Americana.

+ Indie LP on clear vinyl.

For years, Phosphorescent’s rise was a steady one: tours got a little better, rooms got a little bigger, and with it the music became more intricate, more ambitious in its recording and arrangement. Then came 'Muchacho', a juggernaut that to date has sold over 100,000 worldwide, with lead single 'Song for Zula' now well over 50 million streams. Now, five years later, Phosphorescent returns with his seventh studio LP, 'C’est La Vie'. Recorded in Nashville at Matthew Houck’s own Spirit Sounds Studio, 'C’est La Vie' reveals a crystallisation of what made 'Muchacho' such a breakout — a little sweetness and a little menace, sometimes boot-stomping and sometimes meditative.

A lot of life was lived between these records: Houck became a father (twice), built his studio, escaped New York. And 'C’est La Vie' does have a hefty, career-spanning feel. But there’s a newfound wisdom, too, a deeper well for all that livin’. The magic of Matthew Houck’s music has always been the way he weaves shimmering, almost golden-sounding threads through elemental, salt-of-the-earth sounds. It’s not experimental, exactly, but it’s singular and it’s definitely not traditional. That knack, the through-line across the Phosphorescent catalogue, is front and centre here.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
