KUTX host Matt Reilly brings you the best songs ever…this week!
Phosphorescent – “New Birth in New England”
First up, a new song from Alabama native Matthew Houck, whose stage name is Phosphorescent. In past efforts, he’s crafted a trippy, country-tinged sound and image. On “New Birth In New England,” he’s playing with catchy melodies a bit more. What sounds at first listen like a trite jingle reveals itself as a more complex and nuanced song upon repeated listens.
Haelos – “Buried In The Sand”
Next, new music from the breakout British trio Haelos. “Buried In The Sand” is dark, moody, and ominous–just like the weather in England.
Toro y Moi – “Freelance”
Finally, something new from Chaz Bundick, better known as Toro y Moi. While yacht rock has seen a resurgence in recent years, “Freelance” modernizes the sound. This is an excellent song to get you ready for party time.
