More Info:

For years, Phosphorescentís 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 ďSong for ZulaĒ now well over 50 million streams. Now, ve years later, Phosphorescent returns with his seventh studio LP, Cíest La Vie. Recorded in Nashville at Matthew Houckís own Spirit Sounds Studio, Cíest La Vie reveals a crystallization of what made Muchacho such a breakout ó 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 Cíest La Vie does have a hefty, career-spanning feel. But thereís a newfound wisdom, too, a deeper well for all that liviní. The magic of Matthew Houckís music has always been the way he weaves shimmering, almost golden-sounding threads through elemental, salt-of-the-earth sounds. Itís not experimental, exactly, but itís singular and itís definitely not traditional. That knack, the through-line across the Phosphorescent catalog, is front and center here.
