Midlake - 'Roscoe'

15 Aug 2007

Midlake - The Trials of Van OccupantherLast year my favourite discovery was The National. This year, that role goes to Midlake. First played to me by Richard Rutter back in February, it took me while to get around to buying the album this track came from “The Trials of Van Occupanther”. I’ve not stopped playing it since though, its completely won me over.

‘Roscoe’ is enough to give you a flavour, but you really need to listen the whole album. Their first record “Bamnan and Silvercork” is good too, but quite a different sound to Van Occupanther, more Flaming Lips. If you buy one new album this year, please make it Van Occupanther! Also, make sure you check out their collaboration on the latest Chemical Brothers album “The pills won’t help you now” – just beautiful.

    You paint a great mural, and some idiot adds their ugly tag to the little of space you left to balance the composition.
