Return with us now to the mid-1980s through the mid-'90s, when jangle-pop bands dotted the musical landscape: assorted combos with varying approaches but a common denominator of bright guitars and harmonious vocals. One such was Connecticut's Miracle Legion, initially dogged by comparisons to REM, but which achieved cult popularity anyway. After the Legion disbanded in 1996, frontman Mark Mulcahy embarked on a solo career, building on the Legion's foundation to encompass the songcraft of Elliott Smith, the vocal pyrotechnics of Jeff Buckley, and a harrowing lyrical frankness all his own. There's even a tribute/benefit album to him: Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy, including contributions from high-profile admirers like Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Michael Stipe, and the National.
