Josh Rouse

Windsor Star - - YOU -

Love In The Mod­ern Age

Yep Roc Records

Recorded in Va­len­cia, Spain, and in Nashville, Tenn., Josh Rouse’s 12th al­bum is a com­pact col­lec­tion of cool, airy but car­ing songs about re­la­tion­ships in dif­fer­ent stages of de­vel­op­ment or de­te­ri­o­ra­tion. The ti­tle track is “for the lovers who stick with it.” Closer, There Was A Time has a Co­henesque feel — though it could be Richard Haw­ley, too — and the late Cana­dian bard may also be get­ting a wink with I’m Your Man. While Co­hen was will­ing to do any­thing for his lover, Rouse’s guy has been out carous­ing and sounds more provoca­tive than com­mit­ted — come and get me while you can. Even mod­ern loves have heart­beats, and Rouse has a del­i­cate way of keep­ing his fin­ger on the pulse.
