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.
