Moving away from the therapeutic self-examinations of 2015’s ‘The Embers of Time’,┬ásinger/songwriter Josh Rouse rides another sea change, this time inspired by the sophisti-pop elegance of early-’80s acts like The Blue Nile, Prefab Sprout, and The Style Council. Unlike many of their contemporaries at the time, those bands took a more poetic and introspective approach to songwriting, adding warmth and craft to what was frequently electronic-based pop music. Eschewing his typically organic nature, Rouse does the same on the sleek but affecting ‘Love in The Modern Age’. Led by the exquisitely detailed synth-led singles “Businessman” and “Salton Sea,” the Spain-based Nebraskan expat crafts lush worlds populated by jet-lagged romantics and lonesome seekers.
