Album: Milagres, Glowing Mouth (Memphis Industries)

 

They live in Brooklyn but are not art-school types who wear NHS specs and play world-music-influenced indie.

Their name means "miracles" in Spanish and as if to prove they can perform them they sound like a cross between Coldplay and Arcade Fire without ever being insufferable. In fact, Glowing Mouth is so subtly soaring it could restore words such as "atmospheric" and "portentious" to the rock lexicon. You never know, Milagres do happen (to be rather good).
