"There are wonders all over Muchacho, an album that hopefully will take
Houck to a wider audience as popular musical tastes begin to turn his way"
The Associated Press

"These songs deftly map out that mess of ragged hurt,
smoldering hope and self-righteous spite"
The New York Times

"On Muchacho, Houck gathers together everything he's attempted - beery,
rollicking country-rock, haunted tribal hymnals, regret-soaked bar room
heartbreak - and fashions it into something close to a defining statement"
BEST NEW MUSIC (8.8), Pitchfork

"A dizzying experiment forever teetering between the synthetic
and the organic, and that tension is ultimately what makes it so
visceral. If Gram Parsons were alive and making music on his
laptop and still tripping on peyote, Muchacho would be his latest masterpiece"
The Boston Globe

"Muchacho is also Houck’s most accomplished release
to date--his most heartrending and life-affirming, equal parts
lost-love devastation and hip-swaying, horn-led exultation."
AV Club

"["Song for Zula" is] brutal, beautiful, and like the rest
of Muchacho, masterfully executed."
Austin Chronicle

"No matter what happens to Phosphorescent from here on out,
Muchacho is an artist setting a new standard."
Under the Radar

"Muchacho is a vibrant, evocative LP, and a welcome
addition to the Phosphorescent catalogue."
BBC Music

"A hell of a production."
