Miracle Fortress – Maybe Lately

Miracle Fortress sounds like the name for a place in Adventure Time, the cosmic-psychedelic children’s television show I’ve never seen an episode of. It could also be the title of a redoubt that a very plucky army won a decisive victory in.

What it is, at least for this blogger’s purposes, is a band name. Miracle Fortress, whose groovy and accessible songs remind listeners of the Beach Boys. A band with a sound that suggests a quirky hypothetical: What if the Beach Boys never existed? Presuppose Fleet Foxes, MGMT, Tame Impala, you know, bands of a pop/folksy/electro tone, came together for a seaside bonfire?

Together, the best and worst elements of those musical acts would sound something like Miracle Fortress. Here’s “Maybe Lately,” a jam with summer vibes so strong it almost sounds like a Beach Boys knock-off. But that’s the case with music today anyway. Everything echos and repeats.
