Album review: Milagris - Glowing Mouth
A mature debut of sweeping melodrama from Brooklyn-based Kyle Wilson and co.
A little time out can really help get the creative juices flowing again. Kyle Wilson can attest to that - he had a double helping when a break from his creative funk in NYC landed him in hospital with a serious back injury from a fall while climbing.
Glowing Mouth is the silver lining to that cloud, a refreshingly broad indie record underlined by a languorous grace and easy-on-the-ear appeal.
There’s an understated theatricality to his tales of torment and young love, from finger-picked acoustic guitar and flute on Moon On The Sea’s Gate to broad strokes of synth and falsetto singing on the title track.
Genuinely atmospheric, tuneful, lyrical and engaging, this Brooklyn band’s debut is surprisingly mature and reassuringly refreshing.
