The first thing you notice about Phosphorescent, the alias of singer/songwriter Matthew Houck, is his creaky country voice. When he holds a note too long, it breaks, emitting a weariness that suits his songs of travel and regret. Born in Alabama and making his name in Georgia, Phosphorescent adds a Southern slant to his melancholic, ambient brand of indie rock. Now he brings his distinctive voice and a full band to the 9:30 Club in support of last year’s Muchacho. Read more >>> Phosphorescent performs with Caveman at 7 p.m. at 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $18.
