Phosphorescents – Muchacho 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Muchacho

This kind of sums up Muchacho by Phosphorescents “a beautiful outing in hauntingly pastoral heartbreak”. Muchacho is my current quotidian. I keep reaching for why I keep listening; there is a deep melodic tone throughout all the songs, a wounded man reaching for meaning.

This is Matthew Houck’s sixth album is well worth making it your quotidian.

The Quotidian Beasts

Well it woke me up early I went and I drew me a bath
Yeah I knew she’d been coming and she had got here at last
Well I started to scold her aw she just started to laugh
Yeah the beast came upon me, I guess it wasn’t so bad

I said It’s you took your claws you slipped em under my skin
There’s parts that got outside, honey I want to put em back in
We’ve been playing like children, honey, now we’ll play it like men
Those parts that got outside, I’m gonna put them back in.

She took the beak of a raven ah she laid it out just for show
She spun it round on the table, honey. Hey, I thought you should know
I saw the streets were of lightning all out the window below
Yeah the beast was upon me, honey, I thought you should know

Her ancient eyes were upon me they were familiar and black
She laid her claws all up on me, she had found me at last
Ah it woke me up early, I went and I drew me a bath
Ah, the beast was upon me, honey, I guess it wasn’t so bad

APP-IRobot

 

Ah, the concept album. Long before there was a Matrix, the Borg or even Tron, there was I Robot, a record based on the classic sci-fi robot trilogy by Isaac Asimov. Veteran engineer and producer Alan Parsons, along with collaborator, songwriter and lyricist Eric Woolfson formed the Alan Parsons Project in 1975. Parsons was known for his work on albums like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon and The Beatles Abbey Road. Following on the heels of Tales of Mystery and Imagination their brilliant debut on the writings of Edgar Allen Poe, the two created this second installment of the APP based on Asimov’s exploration on the future man and his relationship with artificial intelligence.

This art rock classic is filled with mystery, tension, funk and plenty of hooks as the songs ebb and flow pulling the listener through the story line. There are plenty of great rockers such as I Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You , and Breakdown which are counter balanced with emotional introspective tunes like Don’t Let It Show and Day after Day. Give it a listen. If you surrender yourself to the machine you will be assimilated and in for quite a ride.

I Wouldn’t Want to Be Like You
Some Other Time
Breakdown
Don’t Let It Show
The Voice
Nucleus
Day After Day (The Show Must Go On)

Genesis Ch. 1 V. 32

Grab your running shoes, headphones and Enjoy!
