SOTD 1.14.10

In these winter doldrums, we all need a pick-me-up. Miniature Tigers offer some bright, sunny indie pop with their debut LP, Tell It to the Volcano. Having played under Ben Folds as an opening act on a leg of his 2009 tour, the band is on their way up in popularity, and their easily accessible variety of indie will likely precipitate their inevitable rise. While the Charlie Brand's voice is undeniably uplifting with its boyish timbre, Miniature Tigers' happy-go-lucky schtick can get a bit tired and grating, even over the course of the unusually short 30-minute record. Nonetheless, the Phoenix quartet certainly embrace their niche in the indieverse and crank out summery vibes like no other. Enjoy.
