DOWNLOAD: Phosphorescent - The Mermaid Parade (MP3)

Phosphorescent

The National did not play the High Violet Annex last night (5/12), but many others did. A full report is coming shortly, but in the meantime I didn't want to hold back the information that tonight (5/13) will include films by Margarita Jimeno, Sufjan Stevens, Jonathan Dueck, Deborah Johnson, Ryan Irvin, and Justin Anderson. More importantly, there will also be live performance by The Antlers, Phosphorescent, Sharon Van Etten "and more".

For Phos, it will be his first of two shows tonight, though the second one at Mecury Lounge will be a much longer set (tickets are still available). It will also be his second of two shows this week on East 4th Street. High Violet Annex is right next door to Other Music where he played an in-store the other day (5/10). That's four NYC shows total if you count Union Pool in Brooklyn which he/they played one day after that. The Brooklyn gig was packed and front-man Matthew Houk expressed his joy more than once at playing a hometown show. They played almost the entire new album, Here's to Taking it Easy, which is out now. The crowd was singing along to new song "The Mermaid Parade" which you can download above for free.

Other upcoming Phos dates include a free NYC show at Pier 54 with Dawes (a series that the Antlers are also playing this summer). The Antlers are touring with The National in June.
