Josh Rouse keeps getting better

Josh Rouse got a divorce, moved from Nashville to Spain, and wrote an album called Nashville that isn't about Nashville. It's certainly not country, but more an extension of his last CD, 1972. What I have heard so far has been delish and even the normally snooty Independent gave him a good review. This is music for adults who are over the drama and bullshit they once clung to as a form of entertainment.

Rykodisk has a nice sampler with the lovely (and jaunty) "Winter In the Hamptons" and 3 excerpts. Josh's website also has a 3-full-song sampler with one different song.

He will start touring the US in April.
