Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on Yep Roc.
Available on either 12” vinyl or CD from Yep Roc. Josh Rouse seems to manage to create a unique take on country folk, adding a little bit of joy and tongue-in-cheekness. So you get his Bob Dylan esque confession filled vocals surrounded by playful pop like arrangements. For fans of Glen Campbell, Ryan Adams.
