Mile Twelve (from the album City on a Hill available on Delores the Taurus Records)
A variety of topics tell the stories on City on a Hill,the recent release from Mile Twelve. Telling tales is a tradition in song, Mile Twelve up the ante on customized collections with City on a Hill as they tackle tougher-than-most subjects, wearing the skin of a soldier returning to real life as they fall backwards into the nighttime dreams of “Jericho”. A criminal on the run hops on board a runaway rhythm with “Innocent Again” while a somber melody sees beneath the lies in “Good Times Every Night” as Mile Twelve strum a groove into the traveling rhythms of “Where We Started”.
Maintaining a balance between the past and future of string bands, Mile Twelve erase any distinct lines that mark differences as City on a Hill stands tall for future rhythms in Bluegrass (“City That Drowned”) as a flurry of notes create moods in music instrumentally (“Rialto”), and recalls the magic of street corner busking (“Journey’s End”). A flurry of ragtag notes opens City on a Hill, Mile Twelve pulling the sound together when they stride into Richard Thompson’s “Down Where the Drunkards Roll” as the band follows the song to its natural progression with “Barefoot in Jail”.
