Miracle Fortress- Five RosesApril 2, 2008
I first came across Miracle Fortress over at Nialler9 and fell for them straight away- then again any sort of high register nearly-falsetto voice has me hooked straight away as it did with Loney, Dear and Findo Gask. Very good album with some excellent tracks- the only complaint is that there are a few tracks that are a bit too close to the cloying sunshine vibe of the Beach Boys. Graham Van Pelt has an excellent voice and there are quite a few great tracks like Little Trees and Blasphemy that have a grea vibe. The standout ones though were Have You Seen In Your Dreams and Hold Your Secrets To Your Heart- full of sweet goodness that puts a smile on your face!
Had a look at their label as well, Secret City Records, since you can often find other good groups and lo and behold I came across the Go! Team…again! They are signed with Secret City in Canada and Sub Pop In the US- so will probably come across them again in yet another country- they are worth the listen though so check them out!
Have You Seen In Your Dreams
Hold Your Secrets To Your Heart– just music
