The Trials of Van Occupanther (10th Anniversary Edition)

Midlake’s breakthrough album The Trials Of Van Occupanther gets a deluxe reissue to celebrate its tenth birthday. Certainly a substantial record, and a turning point for the rise of bearded harmony-heavy Americana. Pressed to gold 180g vinyl housed in new artwork along with a poster and a bonus 7” containing...view item »

Live In Denton

Midlake love their hometown don't you know, and with their now rather famous brand of indie pop, they come in for a victory lap in the place they once blossomed from. Live In Denton is the band doing the delicate thing they do on stage, so chances are it is recommended if you like Midlake. ...view item »

The Trials of Van Occupanther

Well after hearing a number of tracks from The Trials of Van Occupanther, my interest was piqued by how Midlake used lush harmonies, crisp production, and interesting counterpoints from the interplay of strings, voices, violin, keyboards, woodwinds, acoustic and electric guitars, drums, and the odd bits of percussion. Quite a few folks i...view item »


What to make of Midlake. A bunch of bearded Texan’s whose sole remit seems to be to sound as much like early 70’s folk proggers Caravan and their Canterbury scene rivals  as humanly possible. From their early beginnings as a kind of Fleetwood Mac tribute act, &lsq...view item »

Late Night Tales

If you've followed Midlake over the years, you won't be surprised by some of the selections on this record, ranging from folk-rock staples like Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span to influential artists such as The Band and Scott Walker. But some of the more obscure tracks on here are the real ear-openers and highlights, especially songs by Bo...view item »

The Courage of Others (Deluxe Edition)

Singer Tim Smith's distinct vocals run the show here, painting a portrait of past times and reviving the ghosts of `60s to`70s folk-rock with the uncanny ease of a weathered listener, and the band's traditionally countrified sound takes things one step further here. The album art should give anyone a pretty good indication of what's to come: Dru...view item »

Bamnan and Slivercork

There is a subtle, engaging quality to these tunes. I still don't think it's as strong an album as the two that followed, but if you enjoyed the other offerings from Midlake don't miss this one either. Tim Smith sings in the style of the best weird indie-rockers, sounding sleepy and slightly off-key, but very pleasant as he croons through each s...view item »


Now I have the new single from Texas dudes MIDLAKE on Bella Union (owned by former bassist of Cocteau Twins!). It's a melodic and pretty song with well worked harmonies but something sticks in the throat. Its a bit too well worked and its become MID...dle of the road... LAKE (see what i did there?) Brian says Chris Rea...view item »

The Courage of Others

Yowza, i wasn't expecting the new Midlake album 'The Courage of Others' to sound anything like this. I'm ware of their group tendency to look back and, to an extent, mimic classic outfits such as Fleetwood Mac or Neil Young but this new record sees the texan quartet embrace the sounds of middle england's prog scene circa 1969. From the opening note...view item »
