Watch Phosphorescent perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The exclamation being the show’s, not our surprise. Leaving you this weekend dear reader with a clip rather than a news story.  Phosphorescent aka singer-songwriter Matthew Houck and band appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday to play ‘New Birth in New England’ which is taken from the band’s latest album ‘C’est La Vie’ which hasn’t been given a proper UK release yet but hey, we are citizens of nowhere these days. It’s a lovely version of the tune and full of pizzazz (imagine that on a triple word score in Scrabble). Have a good one.

Video Premiere: Michael McArthur “Elaine”

From his imminent new album ‘Ever Green, Ever Rain’ this is a beautifully soulful song from Michael McArthur.  In his own words: “The older I become the more time matters. Which is ironic, as it seems now the days are ever fleeting. I don’t mean time for the sake of having it, but for how I give it away. I want to spend mine loving, and I get to, at home and through my songs. Elaine is a gentle reminder to myself and to you, that love is the only thing worth our time.”
