Product Description

Product Description

Glowing Mouth is the breathtaking debut album from Brooklyn five piece Milagres (Portuguese for `miracles' pronounced mil-ahh-gris).

From the opening bars of `Halfway' this is an album of languorous splendour and easy grace, the ambitious musical scope matched by main man Kyle Wilson's swooping, soaring vocals.

Milagres deliver recurring images of empty beaches, shafts of light, isolated mountain ranges and memories of childhood.

With Kyle Wilson's vocals sitting comfortably in the lineage of great rock falsettos, from Prince to Wild Beasts, `Glowing Mouth' is a record remarkable for its confidence and poise, dynamics and drama.

Milagres will embark on their first UK tour in support of `Glowing Mouth'.

BBC Review

A debut that’s easy to lose oneself in, Glowing Mouth seems to be an under-the-radar miracle: a fully formed, wholly enjoyable collection that sounds more like a matured fourth effort than an initial attempt at a long-player, such is its instant familiarity. But, of course, first impressions rarely paint a complete picture, and repeat plays reveal that New York five-piece Milagres are, albeit probably accidentally, masterful mimics, their material stirring thoughts of a host of preceding indie-acts-with-big-ideas. Across these 11 tracks are echoes of Coldplay, Grizzly Bear, British Sea Power and more.

But these apparent parallels don’t detract from what is a very pleasurable experience. Glowing Mouth doesn’t ape any of its makers’ influences shamelessly; instead, motifs that might have been heard before are deeply embedded into core compositions of more singular design, shadows of predecessors dancing atop landscapes that are Milagres’ alone. And it’s a record that doesn’t lack confidence: everything is pushed to 11 when maximum impact is necessary, while withdrawals into introspection are handled with accomplished poise. Self-produced, with the band’s bassist Fraser McCulloch at the controls, it’s a remarkable achievement of clarity above cacophony, where boisterous passages are woven into a whole that redefines understatement as something dripping with invigorating grandeur.

Kyle Wilson’s vocals are a focal point throughout, but he’s never showy. His contributions are neatly balanced so that the music rises and falls around his words rather than rest beneath it, as can happen with projects where an individual writes all the songs (as Wilson does here). Favourite cuts are dependent on mood: Here to Stay finds a midpoint between the drama of British Sea Power and the bucolic charms of Grizzly Bear, its upbeat tone and Chris Martin-like vocals suggesting a radio hit in waiting; Moon on the Sea’s Gate is considerably darker though, recalling under-appreciated Australian combo Devastations, whose 2007 LP Yes, U is (to this writer’s ears) a disquieting classic of its kind.

The title-track’s got a little funk in its step, Lost in the Dark skips along like a Doves track dropped behind the mixing desk during the Manchester band’s The Last Broadcast sessions, and To Be Imagined borrows a feeling from acclaimed Danes Efterklang. So there’s variety enough here to ensure attentions don’t wander, and while originality might be at a premium in places Glowing Mouth is a polished, well-arranged album that could find a happy home in countless collections.

Format: Audio CD
I have no idea who Milagres are(apparently the name means miracles in Portugese) and like to take a chance on new music if I've seen a good review or even on a whim because I like the cover or the name.This was recommended by the staff in HMV Edinburgh and it's gorgeous.

The main man would seem to be Kyle Wilson who has a soaring, almost operatic falsetto voice, the arrangements are lush and overblown and loaded with hooks that dig deep in to your brain. It's sort of The Shins produced by Phil Spector or even Coldplay without the annoyance factor.
