Graham Van Pelt, the brains behind Montreal’s Miracle Fortress, must have idolized Brian Wilson as a child. How else do you explain the similarities between the Beach Boy’s and Miracle Fortress’ style? But, if you’re going to copy someone, you might as well copy the best. Miracle Fortress expertly recreates the vocal harmonies and walls of sound that made that brought Brian Wilson so much fame. But, rest assured, their new album, Five Roses, is no Beach Boys rehash; Miracle Fortress add their own touches, blending the shimmering guitar lines and hypnotic melodies of psych-pop in to that classic sound. It may sound like an odd mix, but it works quite well, and the result is striking in it’s originality. Five Roses will be released next Tuesday, via Secret City Records. You can place your order here.
