I've now heard two tracks from Phosphorescent's upcoming LP Here’s To Taking It Easy, and both have knocked me out. It's Hard To Be Humble (When You're From Alabama) is propelled by a bouncy bass line and horn section. The Mermaid Parade, on the other hand, rambles along at a more laid back pace - sounding like a Basement Tapes or American Beauty outtake, guitar licks dancing with honky tonk piano.
Here's To Taking It Easy is out May 11 on Dead Oceans. You can pre-order CD and vinyl here
