#165 Midlake – Antiphon

Midlake are back, and the Texans are promising a new sound on their fourth album Antiphon. Former singer Tim Smith may have left, but much of what made them great before remains, and now they’re branching out once again. According to guitarist Eric Pulido, a more psychedelic feel will mean “less folk and more rock”. Perhaps, but from what we hear of the title track, it just means more warm, lovely fuzziness from this wonderful band.
