Midlake Slide the Chemical Brothers Some "Pills," and, Yeah, They're Downers
On the heels of their recent nominations for MOJO mag’s Best Breakthrough Act and Best Album, Midlake continues to ascend to the upper echelon of quality pop music: They're on the Chemical Brothers’ latest release, We Are the Night, the entirety of which is currently streaming gratis on the Bros' MySpace page.
Seems the Brothers are huge fans of the Dentonites and asked them to write a song for the disc, which will be in stores July 17. The song, “The Pills Won’t Help You Now,” closes the disc. Expect about 2,753 remixes to follow. Till then, we hear you can snag yourself some "Pills" right here, no prescription necessary. --Jonanna Widner
