[SARDONIC SYNTHS] Brooklyn's Miniature Tigers make glossy, synthy pop so sugary it should come with a complimentary cheap plastic toy. Cruel Runnings, the band's latest, sounds like how its pastel-colored cover looks. But there's enough irony in singer Charles Brand's lyrics to keep you from choking on the retro-’80s frosting. It's somewhere between clever and annoying, which is better than being sincere and boring, I suppose.
