I know you’ve already heard 40,000 people telling you Midlake’s new album The Trials of Van Occupanther is the new shiz, but now I’m hear to tell you it is.
When I first got the album I was thinking “Okay so nothing on this album’s gonna hold up to ‘Roscoe.’ You guys were kinda dumb putting it as the first track cause that’s all anyone’s gonna listen to.” But then I got to track two, “Bandits,” and was re-thinking it. And then I hit “Head Home” and it was all over.
This album is one of the best Fleetwood Mac sound-alike records you’ll hear all year, making it one of the best too. Their first album Bamnam & Silvercork (guys what does that even mean?) was okay but all the keyboards got a little boring/annoying. I’m not a big Flaming Lips fan so it didn’t speak much to me. So I was pretty darn glad to get ahold of this one, because it’s amazing.
In case you haven’t heard one of the best songs of the year (I don’t use that lightly):
