00:00 | Matthew Houck, for he is Phosphorescent, likes to work. The Alabama native, now resident in Brooklyn has delivered five albums as Phosphorescent since his 2003 debut. Houck has a highly distinctive artistic voice, but also a refreshing, rolled-sleeves approach to his expression, and if he had his way, he'd have twice as many albums under his belt by now. The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer is envious of the time when prolificacy was expected. "In the '60s and '70s, they were making artists crank out records every six months. With guys like Waylon Jennings, John Prine and even Dylan, I don't think those records would have gotten made in today's climate, because now you're allowed – or even required – to make a grand statement. I have this ideal – and I know it's not possible, because of the way the industry works – of making a record every year."
20:00 | Woods' beguiling song- craft has been described as 'bewitching', 'sonically spectral', 'ominous and dreamlike', with the Sunday Times hailing early solo recordings as 'a revelation in terms of the depth of song-writing'. A multi- disciplinary artist, and musician from Dublin Ireland, Hilary is Sacred Bones Records newest signee. Her evocative songs are imbued with wonder, heartache and a compelling darkness that straddle the acoustic and electronic worlds.
2018 sees her return to rare live captivating performances in support of her debut album 'Colt', released 8thJune worldwide.
