Milagres On World Cafe
Thu, 22 Sep 2011 14:00:00 -0400
The Brooklyn dream-pop band Milagres might bring to mind some juggernauts of the past: "Here to Stay" calls to mind Arcade Fire and R.E.M., where the certified slow jam "Glowing Mouth" conjures Prince's Purple Rain deep cut "The Beautiful Ones." Don't be mistaken, though — Milagres is rightfully hard to pin down. The group's dynamic arrangements and instrumentation provide the perfect bed for singer-songwriter Kyle Wilson's shape-shifting voice, and together they create something curious, but not unfamiliar.
Perhaps the surrealistic feel of Milagres' music comes from its basis in the familiar — old friends who play music together — and the extraordinary: the exhilaration of high-altitude mountaineering. These elements aren't quite as incongruous as they may seem, according to Wilson, who explains his musical and adventurous inclinations in this session of World Cafe.
