Editors’ Notes

Not every band can sustain the loss of their lead singer and chief songwriter. But Midlake formed at the University of North Texas College of Music, where their ranks were lined with jazz students who know the ins and out of music theory and its execution. Here, the band switches gears, writes collaboratively, and sends guitarist/keyboardist Eric Pulido to the microphone. The result is Midlake's fourth album, 2013’s Antiphon: a true representation of the band’s tastes and abilities. Touches of early-'70s David Gilmour–strong Pink Floyd can be heard throughout “Aurora Gone,” while a track like “It’s Going Down” dusts off an old Moog synth for a bit more “modern” (late-'70s/early-'80s) progressive rock and AOR pop (“This Weight”). The folk trips of 2006’s excellent Trials of Van Occupanther have been reined in for prog-rock excursions. Acoustic guitars still form the interiors of “Ages,” but keyboards and harmonies lead things into adventurous new territories. Locked up in their home studio, Midlake sound like a group using all their talents and no longer focused on those of their previous leader.

Customer Reviews

Very pleasantly surprised!!!

I, like many others, was very concerned as to this bands viability after the split of their lead singer. To my utter amazement the majority of the talent seems to have actually been with the band and not the lead (hopes he gets a clue) singer. This album is so very enjoyable that I can now utterly embrace this groups future without any hesitation. Although I was happy to pay $20 bucks for a ticket in LA (but didn't have the time), I certainly won't pay $400 for a ticket in Aspen where I live. I truly wish the best for this superb band, and I look forward to any future releases that may come. Here is the ultimate compliment, The band may ultimately be better off without their previous band member, regardless of his level of talent. I loved the quality of his lead vocals, but this band has everything needed to continue without someone who thinks more of himself than the corporate venture. Buy this album without hesitation!!!

I want more..

A return to things old with a new record.. If this album is as powerful as the song 'Antiphon' then it is their best yet. I WANT MORE, I WANT MORE. ANTIPHON.

Great stuff!
