[video] Phosphorescent - "A Picture Of Our Torn Up Praise" (live @ American Songwriter)

Phosphorescent "A Picture Of Our Torn Up Praise" from American Songwriter on Vimeo.

Not only does Willie Nelson count himself as a fan, but apparently Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent is greatly admired by David Gray as well. In a press release today from Dead Oceans it said, “Last fall, Phosphorescent bassist Jeff Bailey is watching a primetime news show when British songwriter David Gray appears for an interview. The interviewer inquires as to what Gray is listening to on his iPod and he responds, “Frank Sinatra, and an album called Pride by Phosphorescent.” Not sure how those two would play off each other on shuffle, but interesting, no? Houck was invited to join the British singer/songwriter on tour (see dates below).

In other Phosphorescent news, the band is putting the finishing touches on a new studio album, the first of all new material since Pride wowed me back in late 2007. Look for more info about that one in the upcoming months.
