Product Description

The album was recorded in Spain, but is decidedly not “Spanish” in feel. This is an album that, in some fashion, reflects a reprise of the singer-songwriter’s roots. It encapsulates a past for Rouse that is steeped in that American Midwest, infused with the spirit of the endless plains and a homespun existence in Nebraska. And a past also touched by the American South – one with a distinctive friendly nature. It reflects a life growing up with the smooth uplifting sounds of early ‘70s AM radio. But this album is also informed by the present with Rouse’s current home of Spain adding its own distinctive texture to the sounds, spirit and feel of these nine songs.

Money being short and with a few Josh Rouse albums already in my collection, I did wonder if I really needed another right now. After all, he's not a Bowie, radically changing his sound all the time; wasn't expecting him to suddenly throw out his melodicism and warm tones to make way for the latest fashions.

But I heard it streaming on his website, and then the next day I went back and streamed it again... and again... and placed my order.

Because it appears I really do need another Josh Rouse album, if it's this one in any case. Yes it's full of his usual virtues - a rare and wonderfully achieved lightness of touch, spring in step; an easy listening balminess without being remotely bland; wit and charm, atmosphere and just-right playing - but the sounds and arrangements are different enough from previous albums, the new songs more than strong enough, to make this a must-have purchase, whether you've got others of his or are a first time buyer.

It's short - around 25 minutes - but you'll want to play it again as soon as it ends. Takes talent to make music this light but strong. One of my favourite albums of the year without a doubt.

Copying an other recent purchase, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, for long and eponymous works, Josh Rouse's latest effort offers more top quality pop, its only drawback being that it's too short. The album was recorded in Spain, where Rouse apparently now lives, though he's not gone all flamenco. It's more rootsy than his previous work and combines simple Americana with a European tinge and feel, a playfulness that the serious American stuff sometimes lacks. Like Calexico with humour.
If you're new to Rouse, he's a singer / songwriter who does well-crafted, intelligent pop, this time with a lighter touch than in the past.
Opener "Diggin' in the sand" sets the scene with a delicate, tuneful opening with a spring in its step. He might have flamenco but it's got the feel of sitting in the Spanish sun and chilling with a beer.
"Movin on" has a bit of a Spanish feel in the guitar - until the vocals come in, it could be Calexico - and each song has its own particular appeal; I like the whispered chorus in "To the city". A delightful, if short, album.

If like me you have been a little disapointed with Josh's releases since 'Nashville' only finding the occasional gem to keep you interested then this is a pleasant surprise. Good songs with lovely arrangements and a great band make this his best and most consistant release since 'Nashville'. With no Spanish language to get over it's simply a recording that makes you feel good(and that's worth alot). A great one for long hot summer days - it won't challenge you too much but is quality throughout - just let it soak in and drift away on a summer breeze.

I have been a big Josh Rouse fan now for many years... and there was nothing on this album that will change that. The album is a laid back afair, still with sun blushed tones, great arrangements and classic melodies. Not very adventurous, but then that has never been his style.

My on criticism is that its all over far too quickly. Lasting about 30 minutes, you're left wanting more.
