Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
