Riff: Phosphorescent – “Ride On/Right On”

Mar 20, 2013

Take your greedy hands, honey, lay ‘em on me

from Ride On/Right On lyrics by Phosphorescent

Housed on a break-up record full of meditative catharsis and newfound electric-key tricks for an otherwise lap-steel and twang heart, Houck gets destructive here, egging a fling of a vixen on as the two hop on a moto, booze it up, fully aware of their fleeting feelings and “ride on,” baby.
