Listen to New Midlake Track


From album due out early November.

 By Blurt Staff

 Denton, Texas, combo Midlake will have their ATO Records debut Antiphon arrive November 5. NPR Music is already singing the praises, noting, “Each of Midlake’s full-lengths has had it’s own character, though they share an affinity for the ‘70s, when progressive rock and bold musical themes ruled. This album feels dreamy in a psychedelic way. But, like music from the classic band The Moody Blues, even the spacier moments still hold on to melody and structure”.

 Check out the stream of “Provider”:

Recorded at their studio in Denton, the self produced Antiphon came together in six months and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Belle and Sebastian, M83, Beck). According to Eric Pulido, “Antiphon is the most honest representation of the band as a whole, as opposed to one person’s vision that we were trying to facilitate.”

 The band will kick off new dates on November 5 at Brighton Music Hall in Boston, MA and will make stops in major markets including New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chapel Hill, Atlanta and Nashville winding up with two dates opening for Pearl Jam in Dallas and Oklahoma City.
