It's been waaaaay too long since we've heard any material from Denton, TX band Midlake. I spent most of 2006 listening to the bands album The Trials of Van Occupanther on constant repeat. Now, finally, the band will release their latest effort The Courage of Others on February 1, 2010 on Bella Union. It'll be difficult to top their last LP but I've got faith these boys can do it. Check out the bands blog for track listing and a few Phoenix-less tour dates.
