Miles Kurosky – Dresden

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and former Beulah frontman Miles Kurosky’s debut solo album, The Desert of Shallow Effects, has been widely anticipated by fans since he quietly put the song An Apple for an Apple on his MySpace page in 2008, eliciting praise from Pitchfork and other influential blogs.

She Was My Dresden, which Kurosky wrote about “how true love is equal to any obliteration, positively apocalyptic but beautifully devastating,” is another of the album’s highlights. “Basically,” he says, “it’s the story of the love of my life going into a coma, and how I would react, wishing for her to just say my name one last time. In the end, I pull a Romeo and Juliet.”
