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 two unreleased tracks. Deluxe indeed!

8/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd November 2016

It's very impressive to hear how Midlake use 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 invoke comparisons to Fleetwood Mac's mid-70s line up with Buckingham and Nicks, but I think the better comparison is with the Future Games and Bare Trees albums maybe even Fleet Foxes. Good to see it getting the 10 year anniversary treatment.
