One of Americas most celebrated acts of recent times, Midlake, has just delivered their extraordinary third album The Courage of Others, & will soon embark on their second Australian tour.
Existing outside the plane of trends & time The Courage of Others is a truly committed statement to artistic independence. It is Midlakes most complete & beautiful body of work yet, best appreciated as a whole in the old-fashioned sense of what an album should be. Sharing the same gorgeously warm, analogue electro-acoustic template as its much revered predecessor, The Trials of Van Occupanther, the new album is definitely a slower, darker, eerier & dreamier, tinged with late 60s/early 70s British folk nuances. Looms of textured keyboards, flute, guitars & voice are woven into broad cloaks of sound, all riding the sound of songwriter Tim Smiths sweeping vocals.
