Earlier this year, Jimi Goodwin (ex-member and vocalist of Doves) released his debut solo album, ‘Odludek’. Although this passed my by entirely, I just happened to stumble upon one of the album’s singles, Oh! Whiskey the other day, and fell in love with it immediately. In all honesty, the song goes on a little too long, but the opening three minutes are truly beautiful. Full of gorgeous swelling melodies, Oh! Whiskey’s generous solo piano line, strings, acoustic guitars, hand-bells, harmonica and tenacious beat blend marvellously well beneath Jimi Goodwin’s rich, hug-in-a-mug vocals. Enjoy.
