Former Fillup Shack frontman turned Phosphorescent is Mathew Houck.. Curly haired, calm and swirling with a smooth magnetic southern voice. And the new album (recorded with members of the Clairvoyants) One Hundred Times Or More (WRM109) takes the bold right step forward, eschewing easy options: no simple songwriter shtick or acoustic coffee-bar bag. Instead, a whorl of slowed and stretched out songs, with the cracked vocals reminiscent of Will Oldham or Damien Jurado alongside a high reedy organ swallowed by fuzz and thrum and squall. Rough cut, it unfolds and unfurls and reveals itself to be a masterful, powerful thing, dense and dark and coiled and restless.
