“Too Sick to Pray” + “At Death, a Proclamation” (Ukulele Sessions) (Video)

    This video offers up a preview to Phosphorescent’s To Willie, their forthcoming disc of Willie Nelson covers. And the weathered crack in singer Matthew Houck’s voice proves to be an excellent conduit for Nelson’s lonesome tune on "Too Sick to Pray." Though his ukulele solo might be a little off time on the track, all is forgiven when he launches into a haunting performance of "At Death, A Proclamation" from 2007’s Pride.
    To Willie will be released on Feb. 2 by Dead Oceans.
