music monday: phosphorescent.
i don’t even know what to say about this band. i just love everything about it. phosphorescent is one guy, and a handful of instruments. his music is sort of heartbroken, creepy, and unpolished, which i realize doesn’t sound appealing at all, but it is.
this is a picture from a cool night this summer that i had the privilege of laying in the grass in millennium park with a bottle of wine and a group of friends, listening to phosphorescent play. it was just perfect. also doesn’t frank gehry just blow your mind?
months later, i would overhear a willie nelson song in a store…
and then i realized that i owned an entire willie nelson tribute album without knowing it. anyway, i’m fairly certain that i have every phosphorescent song ever in the world, and choosing songs for this playlist was a nightmare. but, after a lot of heartache, i’ve narrowed it down to these favorites. including a few of those famous willie tributes.
so… i realize that a huge part of this playlist is from the to willie album.
i guess next week’s music monday might have to be about good old shotgun willie.
