Album Review

Listening to Weatherhouse, the second solo album from Radiohead drummer Philip Selway, and it's hard not to imagine that it exists in an alternate universe, one bereft of the electronica that rewired the English band's circuitry in the late '90s. Synthesizers are by no means absent on Weatherhouse — an electronic pulse is among the first sounds heard on the album — but they are not prominent. They, like so much else on this handsome record, function as a colorful thread in an intricately woven tapestry. Where there's often a steely glint in the master plan of Thom Yorke (the near simultaneous release of Tomorrow's Modern Boxes makes comparisons hard to avoid), Selway prefers a small-scale intimacy. His voice — often murmuring, never soaring — has an inherent conversational warmth that sometimes distracts from the sly complexities of his compositions. Then again, the charm of Weatherhouse is that it's unassuming: he's tapping into the gentle ebb and flow of classic English art rock but he's sensible enough to never succumb to the ostentatious display of brains that sometimes plagues classic prog. This is an immaculately crafted, impossibly tasteful miniature, one that will satisfy any listener longing for a Radiohead stripped of future shock.

. .. …Coming Up For Air… .. .

Just watched his music video for “Coming Up For Air.” It was so gooood. I love this new vibe Selway has on this new track. Percussion sounds amazing. Cool synth sounds. And a really chill and spacey chorus. Selway’s voice is kind of becoming a little gem to me. Sounds different from his first album. But, I expect nothing less from the guys of Radiohead. Always bringing something new and innovative. Looking forward to more.

More than the Drummer

Phil crafted an underrated gem with Famialil. Everythimg I have heard about this says this will be another great addition.

Yes I've been waiting for this album

His first album if great I recommend that you check it out :)
