Milagres singer Kyle Wilson does not move idly. Stricken with writer's block a few years back, the Brooklyn native fled to Canada, where he promptly injured his back rock climbing. He wrote his psych-pop quintet's second album while bedridden, fulfilling the wanderlust his accident cut short by indulging in languid chamber-pop piano ("Doubted") and falsetto funk-lite grooves (the title track). Yet Glowing Mouth's general disillusionment anchors its sprawl: Wayfarer anthem "Here to Stay" depicts a Walden-esque oasis of bucolic hills and lilting birds outside, but when Wilson throws open the shutters, no light shines through.
