Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Milagres/Sammy Slims

When: Thu., Jan. 16, 7 p.m. 2014

For the past decade or so, Brooklyn's churned out indie band after indie band. Every so often, one comes along that's not as ironic. Replacing insincere hipness with legitimate songwriting, Milagres focuses its attention on opening new doors to beautiful soundscapes. Their 2011 release Glowing Mouth carefully blends elements of electronics, folk music and indie rock. Like indie rockers Grizzly Bear, the guys occasionally get a little spacey but not without grounding their listeners with a solid beat or guitar line. Their new album, Violent Light, isn’t out until next month, but the album's first single, "The Letterbomb," shows the band's going in a little heavier direction. Full of punchy drums and choppy, distorted guitars, the track's simpler but not worse for the change. Undoubtedly, a new slew of songs from the upcoming album will make its way into the set list for tonight's free show. (Patrick Stoops)
