CD reviews for Phosphorescent

To Willie CD review - To Willie
The title of this salute from Phosphorescent - Matthew Houck's one-man indie folk act out of Brooklyn - to Willie Nelson refers to Nelson's 1977 album "To Lefty From Willie." While Nelson focused on Lefty Frizzell's better known songs, Houck targets relatively obscure songs from the Nelson catalog. An effective trio of tunes comes from Nelson's Phases And Stages, with renditions of Walkin', Pick Up The Tempo and especially It's Not Supposed To Be That Way »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: There's a lot to be said about The Felice Brothers – The Felice Brothers have soldiered on, occupying the fringes of the musical world with ups and downs. After not knowing whether the group would even continue following the departure of half of the band a few years ago, The Felice Brothers continued with a new rhythm section and a new album, "Undressed," that is heavily political.... »»»
Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»

Front Porch CD review - Front Porch
Joy Williams' "Front Porch" album is a beautiful collection of acoustic, country-folk music. The title cut, for instance, includes sweet fiddling, while the rest of the album takes an appreciated low-key approach to its instrumentation. »»»
