Stream: Twisted Mile at MySpace
Woodenbox is the alias of Scottish singer-songwriter Ali Downer, who after one solo album has expanded his sound with backing band A Fistful of Fivers. Their first single ‘Twisted Mile’ is one of the catchiest tracks I’ve heard in a while, four minutes of melody-rich country backed by an energetic band playing gypsy folk with a hint of mariachi brass. I’m really excited to see what they come up with next.
They’re playing a few dates in their home country over the next month but fingers crossed for them making it south of the border soon.
