New Midlake Video: Very Calming
It occured to me this morning, as I was trolling YouTube for something entirely different, that we never posted the winning entry in the make-a-Midlake-video contest sponsored by the band's label, World's Fair. The winner was announced December 15. Here it is, then -- the winning entry for "It Covers the Hillsides" by Angus Borsos of Vancouver, British Columbia. Looks like ol' got the whole family involved: The cast includes Boy (Silas Borsos), Girl (Maddy Campbell), Man (Jeremy Borsos) and Woman (Sus Borsos). It's very...pleasant. Soothing, even. Catatonic, almost. --Robert Wilonsky
