About Milagres

After garnering wide critical acclaim for their 2011 album Glowing Mouth, Milagres have returned with an exciting new endeavor. Violent Light, out February 25, 2014 on Kill Rock Stars, finds the band’s melodic sensibilities intact, but with rougher edges. Singer Kyle Wilson weaves together his falsetto and lower registers as seamlessly as he always has, but the songs on this album have more of a sense of urgency. With the departure of multi instrumentalist Eric Schwortz and the addition of kinetic drummer Paul Payabab the band has become a fourpiece, and this stripped down lineup has translated to the music: the songs are somewhat more crystalline, more hardedged than on the previous album, without losing any of the beauty.

First single “The Letterbomb” is a great example of this. Wilson’s voice wanders over and through a musical landscape punctuated by Payabab’s snapping, nearfunk rhythms, while foundsound voices and piano hover hauntingly in the mix. It’s a dreamy, psychedelic landscape with a solid heartbeat, no easy feat for any band.

Recorded at home by the band and mixed by wunderkind Andrew Maury (Ra Ra Riot, RAC), Violent Light feels immediate and complex, challenging and welcoming at the same time. It’s exciting to think how these songs will come across live, as they really give the band – and the audience – something to sink their teeth into.
