Josh Rouse has a new album, "Nashville." It's not quite the high that "1972" was, but Josh has a distinctive voice both in his singing and in his writing. He takes a little R&B and a little Morrissey/Smiths and then writes about life with a vague-enough-to-be-universal yet specific-enough-to-be-interesting point of view.

You can hear samples of the tunes at Miles of Music. Buffalo Nickel is back in the Top 10 sellers on MoM this week, by the by. Apparently Mr. Rouse has recently moved to Spain. That's what the press release that came with the album said--it didn't go into specifics. I wonder if he moved there because the Spanish voted out their prime minister who supported the war in Iraq...
