Philip Selway

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway has released the first track from his upcoming solo album Familial. In the past, Selway has anchored his band's off-kilter arrangements with rock-solid beats; now, he steps out from behind the drum set. If "By Some Miracle" is any indication of Familial as a whole, the album should appeal to fans of Iron & Wine and similar artists' low-fi, acoustic aesthetic. The song's late afternoon, hushed vibe stems from Selway's whispered vocals and the constant fuzz that brushed drums provide. It's a beautiful song, and if he can capture that Radiohead magic, Selway may just have one of the best albums of the year to his name.
