Brooklyn’s Milagres is Kill Rock Stars’ latest signing; the quartet’s fluent indie-pop is already a popular favorite in their native New York, thanks to their self-released debut, last year’s Seven Summits. Milagres is already hard at work on that album’s follow-up—in September, KRS will release their second full-length, Glowing Mouth. The single of the same name has already been released, and it’s absolutely luminous. Frontman Kyle Wilson’s vocals are liquid-smooth, his falsetto shimmers over the tune’s pleading melody, buoyed by piping organs and moving synth lines. It’s a rare and lovely kind of ambience, and if the remainder of the album is this beautifully measured and contemplative, we’re in for something really special. With USF, Tumble Dry. ERIN K. THOMPSON
