The President: Miracle Mile

news & reviews

  • about this album

    On Miracle Mile, Horvitz and The President “make something extremely hard to do seem easy,” said the Boston Globe, creating “a thoroughly modern style of their own that, praise be, doesn’t forget melody, harmony, and even catchy hooks.” The Chicago Tribune agreed, saying this album “reveals not only the band's avant-rock proclivities but also its deeper jazz roots and more romantic tendencies.”
