Riff: Phosphorescent – “A Charm/A Blade”

Mar 20, 2013

Lay me down an bawl me out/Tell me everything’s been sold/Tell me everything, I’ll go

from A Charm/A Blade lyrics by Phosphorescent

Damn dude, what the hell did this girl do to you? Houck lays on his angelic brood thick as some keys and lap-steel keep him company until he rips off the bandage and demands wounds get healed, a walloping brass section coming in to soundtrack all the shit in his way, mastering his unique catharsis.
