Phosphorescent (aka Matthew Houck) released one of the most memorable tunes of 2013, “Song for Zula” from his record Muchacho. On tour with a full band last spring, a flat tire delayed the group’s arrival in Portland, including our scheduled studio session. To get them to soundcheck on time, Hauck played the session solo, and stripped of their atmospheric layers, the songs revealed themselves in a new way we found extremely compelling.

These solo versions, mixed by OPB’s Steven Kray, proved to be favorites of Houck’s as well. This week, the Dead Oceans label announced a Record Store Day Exclusive EP, with “Song for Zula” and the OPB-recorded version as the B-side. (Record Store Day is April 19th. You can find a list of stores here.)

Here are the videos from our Phosphorescent session:
