I've been listening to Miracle Fortress' Five Roses album and am left a bit disappointed. It had all the hallmarks of a great indie listen:
- a one-man (Graham Van Pelt) bedroom-production effort
- from Montreal (the 'new' New York/wherever)
- talked about all over the blogosphere
- the band name had the word 'Miracle' in it (see Miracle Legion, The Miracle Workers etc).
Good review/background from Stylus Magazine here but strangely does nothing for me. Maybe Lately is the one song that stands out - but for the wrong reason (now which 60s band does this sound like?!)
Five Roses [BUY]
