It’s like a game of pin the tale on the donkey trying to tag Matthew Houck’s long term project, Phosphorescent, to a genre. Since he’s been working under the moniker Phosphorescent he’s dabbled with elements of blues, soul, rockabilly and psychedelia. But one thing remains unchanged: He’s always his own capricious brand of moody and be-draggled. “Ride On /Right On” is another instance of Houck’s idiosyncratic Americana and, like the rest of this year’s critically acclaimed Muchacho, it sounds like Houck’s stumble home after a few gluttonous rounds of thought at the bar.

The video for “Ride On/Right On” has Houck clad in some modest cowboy glitz and careening to the beat of his hazy stupor. His magnetism might make you feel like your catching his haze but, don’t sweat it, you aren’t seeing double. It’s just the video. You can still operate machinery.

Catch the video and an eye-popping amount of tour dates for the remaining part of the year, below.
