Looking For More Insight Into Midlake's The Courage of Others?

If so, Midlake's Tim Smith has got you covered. The Denton-based band's frontman just-releaed this Lala playlist of songs that the band says inspired its upcoming album's "obscure" and "British folk" influence.

And, uh, it's obscure alright. Can't say we here at DC9 are all that familiar with the names on there. But, then again, we weren't actually rocking out to Bread much before the release of 2006's The Trials of Van Occupanther, either.

So, if you can't wait until The Courage of Others sees its Bella Union release on February 2, 2010, then, hey, take a listen.
