Milagres' recent second album, Glowing Mouth, is a truly spacious release. It's the sort of record that can whitewash any room it occupies and fill it with that extra breath of pure oxygen needed to fully clear one's head. This is likely a result of its conception; lead singer Kyle Wilson was desperate to escape the occasionally harrowing onset of claustrophobia in New York City and washed up in sprawling British Columbia, strapped to a bed with a back injury and faced with the mutinying inner workings of his brain. The track "Lost in the Dark" exemplifies these feelings beautifully, as it toes an effervescent calypso beat upon which Wilson's voice—bathed in an ethereal resonance—is supported as he repeatedly sings, "Lost in the dark/Feeling the way," and trails far off into a dark, yet restorative abyss.
