phosphorescent – to willie 2009

album of the year 2009

In 1975, Willie Nelson released a tribute to one of the original country outlaws, Lefty Frizzell, called TO LEFTY FROM WILLIE. Phosphorescent’s TO WILLIE is an alt-country continuation of the same concept. Its 11 songs are all moderately obscure Willie Nelson tunes (no “Red Headed Stranger” or “On the Road Again”) delivered in a mournful indie country style that reveals Nelson’s oft-underestimated connection to this particular sub-genre. Highlights include “I Gotta Get Drunk” and “Reasons To Quit.”
