By Some Miracle by Philip Selway
“When you’re the same age as the Prime Minister, you think, I’d better get on with this,” Philip Selway grins as he acknowledges the new sea change in British politics but popularity is generally a passing phase while your first album – that’s forever. Knowing time waits for no one, he has delivered Familial, a collection of sublimely fragile, haunting and heartfelt songs that will surprise many, and not only because drummers traditionally don’t do this kind of thing. Familial is so persuasively good, it sounds like Selway has always been a singer-songwriter.
The full album just came out and I am thinking of downloading it this morning, so I just thought I would share a little music joy with you.
