Phil Selway

Philip Selway followed in the footsteps of Radiohead bandmates Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood by releasing a solo album, Familial, in 2010. Previously known for his drumming, drum programming, and occasional background vocals, Selway slipped easily into songwriting mode while also switching to guitar. The groundwork for his solo album came with his participation in Neil Finn's 2001 all-star concerts, dubbed 7 Worlds Collide. 7 Worlds Collide later took the shape of a group and released an album, The Sun Came Out, in 2009. In addition to playing percussion and acoustic guitar, Selway provided a pair of hushed, folk-tinged songs -- “The Ties That Bind Us” and “The Witching Hour” -- and sang lead on them. Re-recordings of these two songs formed the basis of Familial. The album involved assistance from 7 Worlds Collide associates Lisa Germano, Soul Coughing's Sebastian Steinberg, and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and Jeff Tweedy. It was released in August 2010 through Bella Union in the U.K. and Nonesuch in the U.S. Selway's sophomore effort Weatherhouse followed in 2014. More complex and involving than his mostly acoustic debut, with a broader instrumental palette, it had something of the feel of latter-day Radiohead or Yorke's solo work but with an uncategorizable '80s/'90s melodic twist. ~ Andy Kellman
