When you’ve been making thoughtful indie pop for more than 15 years, people say you’ve managed to “carve out a career,” as if by sheer tenacity. In the case of the Nebraska-born Josh Rouse, who now lives in Spain, tenacity has played a part, but his gifts are unmistakable. “Dreamed about Neil Young last night,” he sings on “New Young” from the recent The Embers of Time. “Rolled out of bed and rubbed my eyes/I’ll never be that good, you know.” Self-doubt permeates this midlife-crisis-themed record, but the mood is often uplifting. —David Klein
