Philip Selway – Weatherhouse

Something icy has touched Philip Selway. An opaque current of melancholy ran through his first solo effort, 2010’s Familial, but the almost too-precious folk melodies hung just out of the reach of darkness. On Weatherhouse, Selway’s sophomore record, he replaces his lightly strummed acoustic guitar and delicate harmonies with reverberating bass and vocals pitch-shifted into a darker register. The overall feel is no longer sepia-toned nostalgia and twinges of missed opportunity, but deep, fresh pain.
