Artist to Watch: Midlake

I have recently come across the band Midlake. The song “Head Home” from their latest CD, “The Trials of Van Occupanther,” has been getting decent airplay on Philly’s WXPN 88.5 FM and was getting stuck in my head. I finally heard who performed the song and decided to check them out.

“The Trials of Van Occupanther” is a very solid disc and the music is obviously inspired by 70s rock/folk. To me, “Head Home” sounds like Fleetwood Mac meets Jackson Browne, but with a modern feel.

Anyway, here are a couple of Midlake videos I found on YouTube…enjoy.

“Head Home”

“Young Bride”
