Stellar Indie Pop at MOTR Pub
Another solid free show tonight in Over-the-Rhine at MOTR Pub as Brooklyn band Milagres returns to perform with local heroes The Fairmount Girls. Milagres was last at MOTR just after the release of their latest album, Glowing Mouth, through Kill Rock Stars Records. The album came after songwriter Kyle Wilson seriously injured his back in a Canadian rock climbing adventure. While laid up, Wilson (who was considering quitting "the biz") found himself re-inspired and he reassembled his bandmates when he recovered to recorded Glowing Mouth. Interview magazine has compared Milagres to everyone from Prince and Peter Gabriel to Bon Iver and Radiohead. It's a fair assessment of the band's eclectic collection (but, mostly, it's probably because there's falsetto singing on the record). Check out some of the group's glistening Indie Pop here, then enjoy a couple of video clips below, including a recent appearance on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.
