Matthew Houck recently sat down with Pitchfork and opened up about the rigors of the road and the toll it's had on his life as well as his inspiration for his ambitious and beautiful new record Muchacho. Houck is his usual wide open self during the interview at a Brooklyn, NY watering hole, and it makes for revealing answers:
"Relationships are tough when you're on the road, too-- my girlfriend would come on some of the tours, but it wasn't easy. Drugs and booze were involved. So I lost the place, lost the girl, and lost my mind."
Muchacho in due out March 19th on Dead Oceans and is available now via digital download.
