CMJ preview: Miracle Fortress

"And Maybe When Its Colder You Can Come To Stay"

As CMJ gets closer (and more chaotic) I'm getting excited to know that I've secured a spot to see Montreal's Miracle Fortress at least once. The psychedelic rainbow harmonies of Five Roses have been on my mind since KEXP enlightened me last spring. Miracle Fortress should bring to mind fellow hazy Montreal rockers The Besnard Lakes and the equally Canadian, Caribou(formerly Manitoba). The harmonies on "Maybe Lately" are so fucking Beach Boys and while yes we say that alot, and yes its 2k7's indie rock key word (Wilson-esque), there's no need to deny its looping, whirling seaside goodness. Come check them out with us 10/16 at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC with the Rosebuds, The Most Serene Republic and a slew of others.
