Songs To Listen To is the second album from Two Fingers of Firewater, the genre wary five-piece who wrote, recorded, and mixed the tracks from their steadily evolving rural studio. It was produced by Spencer Cullum (Caitlin Rose, Ryan O' Reilly Band) and Joe Harding. The album weaves a rich tapestry of wonderfully crafted, hook-ridden songs and follows a natural progression from their rootsier eponymous titled debut, (Two Fingers Of Firewater, 2008). Setting its sights on new musical horizons and stretching out sonically, all members contribute songs, ideas and influence here. Songs To Listen To is the result of five musicians and two young producers combining creative abandon and lo-fi studio ingenuity with fearless conviction.
On the road, they have toured extensively alongside the likes of bluegrass and steel mastermind Al Perkins, Bloodshot Records' Deadstring Brothers and the UKs' Redlands Palomino Co and Polly and the Billet Doux. Their combined influences are suitably transatlantic too, listen out for fresh echoes of The La's, Felt, Big Star and Yo La Tengo in their expansive sound. In January 2011 TFOF recorded a live sesion with BBC legend Bob Harris who also introduced their appearance at last year's Truck Festival. Bob calls Two Fingers of Firewater "chaotic - but wonderful". The band have numerous live dates and festival appearances confirmed for what is sure to be a breakthrough summer for a great act.
