The Two Minute Miracles
Volume II (Teenage USA)

By: Cam Lindsay

London, Ontario's The Two Minute Miracles are a bit of a wonder, in that they actually live up to their name. Each song on their sophomore album, Volume II is short enough to speak the truth. Produced by the band's singer/guitarist Andy Magoffin (Royal City, The Constantines, The Hidden Cameras), the record is a throwback to the perfect pop gem, blending in some bluegrass and Americana with a catchy indie rock sound to broaden the appeal. The songs share the same ragged spirit as acts like Sparklehorse and mates Royal City, aiming for a lonesome, "home is where the heart is" message. The tunes sway back and forth like the wind, moving from the rootsy country blues of "Meekly Mate" to the oohs and aahs of the unforgettable "Rayon Queen in a Nylon Dream" and the tin pan alley sound of "Eleven Toes". Volume II is a very delightful record and is highly recommended for anyone who likes a little something different added to their pop music.
