I'm In No Shape To Share My Point of View

Miracle Fortress Five RosesThanks to Paste Magazine's Band of the Week feature, I picked up the new album by Canada's Miracle Fortress called Five Roses, and it's special.

Miracle Fortress is the brainchild of Graham Van Pelt, a Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who in this incarnation builds wall of sound pop songs in the tradition of Brian Wilson and Brian Eno.
What would it sound like if Kevin Shields and Brian Wilson collaborated? Miracle Fortress is my best guess. It is so difficult to create all the textures, noise, and heavy harmonies & melodies found here and do it right. It's not an everyday kind of album, but when it's on, it will be thoroughly enjoyed. Nice find.
