The Mr. T Experience sticks with producer Kevin Army once again on The Miracle of Shame EP, maintaining their indie rock sound that plays into the punk predecessors before them. Echoing the glassy hums of fellow indie poster boys such as Pavement's Stephen Malkmus and Lou Barlow of Sebadoh, Dr. Frank's vocals are wispy and oddly poetic. He's a crooner in his own way, swooning over social trends and concerns. "Leave the Thinking to the Smart People" is purist, while "Stephanies of the World Unite" is jaunty with comical tones of female power. But the real ear candy comes from "Mr. Ramones," surely the Mr. T Experience's wry tribute to the New York City punk pioneers. They are bold, hilarious, and unafraid to proclaim that "Ramones are God!" Laid-back and free-spirited, The Miracle of Shame delivers a healthy dose of classic indie rock, complete with the classic absurdity and cleverness.
