MIRACLE FORTRESS - Five Roses

miracle%20fortress-five%20roses.jpgThe new project of Montreal multi-instrumentalist Graham Van Pelt, Miracle Fortress is primed to be a true sleeper hit. At face value, Five Roses is a spot-on combination of the usual indie-pop influences: Beach Boys, My Bloody Valentine, Phil Spector, etc. Nothing new right? Well, in the grand scheme of things maybe not, but a great pop song remains a great pop song and Five Roses has twelve of them. Boasting a sound that is both full and fragile, there is much intelligence in the arrangements and writing on this record. A lot more people will know about this album as the year grows.
