Home by Josh Rouse
Released: Mar 2000
Label: Ryko/Rhino
After working with Lambchop's Kurt Wagoner on the Chester EP, Rouse returned with this superb sophomore set. His melodic talents remain while his lyrics become diffuse, with the airy baroque arrangements somehow matching the unsettling, often darkly internal songs. "Direction" is an alt universe FM staple, and "100mm Backstroke" swells with understated melancholy.
