Riff: Phosphorescent – “Sun, Arise! (An Invocation, An Introduction)”

Mar 20, 2013

Sun a-rising. Ease. Easy oh/Dark as I been. Ease. Easy oh/Be easy oh

from Sun, Arise! (An Invocation, An Introduction) lyrics by Phosphorescent

Familiar swirling catharsis opens the curtain on new weird Americana thoroughbred’s sixth tapestry, sparkling with newfound electronica touches and a cascading, angelic refrain reminding your inner gremlin at the day’s most fragile state to back the fuck off, the sun is here, be easy.
