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 notes of 'Acts of Man' i'm hearing early Moody Blues and the Greg Lake vocals on the mellow psyche pop of 'I talk to the Wind' by King Crimson (a.k.a Crimmo). It certainly takes courage to pillage from the already well trodden path of the Canterbury folk/prog scene so for that i applaud the band. They do a damn good job of reinvigorating these sounds and present a record that is meant to be heard and and enjoyed in it's entirety....like a proper record. Ballsy stuff for such a whimsical record.
