“It’s Hard To Be Humble” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

     

    Matthew Houck brought Phosphorescent to David Letterman’s show last night (Dec. 9), where they performed this track from their new album on Dead Oceans, Here’s To Taking It Easy. This is a slight shift away from Houck’s alt-country domain, instead taking the band into the kind of traditional rock territory mapped out by Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen, and causing Letterman to positively shriek with delight at the song’s close.
