Dan Miraldi, the NE Ohio-based musician whose candy-sweet pop songs are underpinned with decades of American rock history, recently released Tease, a new three-song solo EP. Miraldi, who also plays keyboard with the Washington, DC-area band The Silver Liners, produced Tease with Kyle Downes. Jay Nemeyer provided some guitar, bass and drums. It’s easy to think of Tease as a kind of appetizer for Miraldi’s future releases: The three songs- “Lucinda”, “The Holy Roller Stone Revival” and the title track- demonstrate a broad range of musical talents and lyrical subjects, and provide a provoking sampling of what Miraldi is capable of. “Holy Roller” is an assertive, politically flavored opening that recalls the anthems of ’60s activists. “Lucinda” is mellow and accompanied by one of the boppy choruses Miraldi does so well. And the title track is a mild, catchy garage-rock number that’s a wink to bands like Weezer and The Ramones. You can find Tease at CDBaby.com, and more information on Dan can be found at danmiraldi.com. He’ll be playing with the Albino Winos and with the Silver Liners at The Winchester (12112 Madison Ave., Cleveland; 216-226-5681; thewinchester.net) on December 11. Tickets are $5 and the show starts at 9.
