Doves’ singer/guitarist/etc Jimi Goodwin is set to release his first solo album, Odludek in early 2014 and the first preview of it is this track, “Oh! Whiskey”. It’s an ode to the ups and downs whiskey provides and the rhythm and energy acoustic guitar-driven track is like a microcosm of a night spent drinking the stuff. It starts off with mellow strumming then gradually picks up foot-stomping energy before developing into a full-fledged romp and finishing with a slowed, swirling stammer – it fits right in with the same quality as anything his band has done.
