Riff: Phosphorescent – “Terror in the Canyons (The Wounded Master)”

Mar 20, 2013

But now you’re telling me my heart’s sick/And I’m telling you I know/And you’re telling me you’re leaving/And I’m telling you to go

from lyrics by Phosphorescent

Most blood-linked to the twang and beer-soaked heel-kicks of Here’s to Taking it Easy the way of alt-country sonics, the dust gets kicked up quick and choking, as Matthew Houck attempts to tame the ‘Master’ and its vice on his heart, in this bittersweet howl.
