Current Listening: Antiphon by Midlake

The sumptous ‘Trials of Van Occupanther’ was my favourite album of 2006, but the change in direction for the third Midlake LP ‘Courage of Others’ tested my folk-tolerance to its limits. It’s not a bad album, but didn’t get as many plays as Occupanther.

Now that Tim Smith has left the band, they’ve changed direction again, to a sound that’s more of a continuation of the second album, but definitely a progression. Here’s the title track:

Loving the album so far! Its new, but its undeniably Midlake.


On the playlist: Ladytron - Velocifero

Velocifero is supposedly only available through iTunes until June 3rd, but I found it on play.com just fine.
