Josh Rouse – Love in the Modern Age

Album (Brief) | Yep Roc Records | By Allan Wilkinson | Stars: 3/5

New Romanticism re-visited by the Nebraska-born singer songwriter, now relocated to Spain, his acoustic guitar put aside in favour of keyboards, sax and moody 1980s synth-pop musings, reminiscent of Leonard Cohen’s I’m Your Man in places, especially on the title song.
