This is a cool record! Miniature Tigers, in the purest, college radio appropriate, probably from Athens, occasional string flourish way, are an indie rock band. Its a wily genre, but anytime you can hear that squeak of fingers up and down the fretboard and it's not folk, it's coming from an earnest place. Miniature Tigers Fortress was produced by Morning Benders' Chris Chu. Chu himself is a indie chameleon, blending pop stripes into his band's natural rock tendencies. He's a good guide for the Tigers, bringing in bits of echo, snappy snare, chorus and a whole host of warm riffing for punchy listening, straightforward and sunny. Fortress is more hammock than bed, easy rest but undeniably sleep.
