I first came across Phosphorescent about a decade ago with the brilliant "Aw Come Aw Wry," and they still manage to find new and interesting places to go on each subsequent release.  New album "Muchacho" is probably their best yet.  Haunting and dust, it sounds kind of like if Lee Hazlewood was on a downer kick, toying with synthesizers and other modern studio devices, and recorded an alt-country album with Bruce Springsteen.  Yeah...that sounds about right.  Listen to the beautiful "Song for Zula" below and grab the album from Dead Oceans.
