Phosphorescent, "Reasons to Quit"

Any self-respecting toker would queue up Willie Nelson in their required listening, but Phosphorescent's take on the Red Headed Stranger casts a new spin on those timeless songs thanks to singer Matthew Houck's ethereal palate. Nelson and Merle Haggard's original self-aware stoner anthem gets a modern sheen on To Willie, Phosphorescent's 2009 tribute LP. It's never smart to be totally unaware of the consequences of getting high, and Phosphorescent ups that quotient here – it's just a touch more battered and broken than the original, while still being beautiful, a sonic reminder of what gets passed over when you always pass the J.
