Gig Alert and Bonus MP3: Miniature Tigers - "Gold Skull"

Brookland-based indie rock act Miniature Tigers has been around since 2006--and from the beginning the band has received critical kudos. With its dreamy, synth-heavy indie pop, the band's success hasn't come unexpectedly; frontman/guitarist Charlie Brand has a true gift with melody and a nice lyrical touch as well.

Miniature Tigers' second full-length effort, Fortress, came out a week ago and the band was kind enough to offer up one of the new album's best cuts, "Gold Skull," for the listening enjoyment of DC9 readers. Stream or download the song after the jump.

And if that's not enough, you can catch Miniature Tigers tonight at The Loft on a nice bill that includes The Spinto Band, a catchy little sextet out of Maryland.
