Miracle Fortress, 'Five Roses' (Secret City)

8
Five Roses
Critical Mass
Label: Secret City

by Jennifer Maerz

The antidepressant industry would be in serious trouble if troubled souls could just absorb the melodic elation of this stunning debut. Under the leadership of multi-instrumentalist Graham Van Pelt, Miracle Fortress' jubilant indie pop effortlessly integrates cuddly mammalian coos, cottony guitar fuzz, and gentle falsetto choruses. More earthbound than Animal Collective's enchanted meanderings, and full of Beach Boys bliss, Five Roses distills euphoria into a pastel wall of sound. Play "Hold Your Secrets to Your Heart" twice daily and its cascading keyboards alone should eradicate any nasty mood swings.
