Woodenbox - Foreign Organ
On this outing Woodenbox nearly crawls completely out of their folk rock skin, with muscular arrangements, assured vocals and the kind of full sound that a talented five-piece can deliver when all of one mind. They haven't lost their sense of fun so much as beefed up the overt rock drive. And it fits them like a glove. However, the band haven't lost their touch for quiet and happy killer tracks either, as demonstrated by "A9 North". The performances are tight, but not overly polished, and they pop with vitality, conviction and warmth.
Try out a few tracks below. You can stream the entire album at the Bandcamp link.
Woodenbox is Ali Downer (guitars/vocals/harmonica), Nick Dudman (drums/vocals/ukulele), Fraser McKirdy (bass), Jordan Croan (electric guitars/vocals), Phil Cardwell (trumpet), and Sam Evans (tenor saxophone). Foreign Organ is out now via Olive Grove Records in vinyl, digital download and compact disc formats.
