Milagres means “miracles” in Portuguese. However, Milagres the band is actually from Brooklyn, so I equate that nomenclature to a college student getting a tattoo of a word in latin because it sounds cooler. Double however, I don’t care, because Milagres’ songs are great. Tattoo as you please.
Last post we touched on my love of lady vocals and flanneled folk bands. Today, I divulge my love of both cinematic electronica (see: M83) and falsetto. Boy, do I love me some falsetto. Guess what? This song, “Glowing Mouth,” has both. The falsetto comes in at 1:20, so brace yourself. I can say with confidence that this is the perfect song for driving down an empty freeway at night with the windows rolled down for no reason. Do it — I dare you.
This is a band to keep an eye on — definitely some grander potential in their sound. Posting their bandcamp link as well in case you want to check out some more songs, tour dates, or purchase stuff.

Yup. I’m gettin’ this album.
Apparently you also have a thing for specific songs and driving to them. This is #2 for that category as well.
I do indeed. But the first one was “Window Blasters” and this one is “Night Driving.” Totally different.
Ben — it’s on Spotify.
