Salon Takes a Dip in Midlake

Localish time-travelin' rockers Midlake get some love on Salon today: From the Audiofile, Thomas Barlett has this to say about the band and its second disc, The Trials of Van Occupanther:

"Texas rockers Midlake have dropped their former quirked-out '60s psych-pop shtick and started on some '70s revivalism, a project that seems distinctly opposed to the current indie zeitgeist, but carried off with such conviction and perfectionist craftsmanship that, who knows, they might change the prevailing trends."

You can also download the single "Roscoe" on the site. Or...OK, just go here. We're swell like that. --Robert Wilonsky
