Midlake – The Trials of Van Occupanther

Indie Folk, Progressive Rock



What happens when a bunch of guys who were in the same Jazz college course in college get together and form a band?  Midlake does.  “The Trials of Van Occupanther” is Midlake’s second album.   The album has been compared to 70’s bands such as “Fleetwood Mac” and “Crosby, Stills, and Nash” by many music critics.  It opens with the single “Roscoe”, a lament of a simpler time, held together by a background piano and guitar.  Overall, it’s difficult to tell that they specialized in jazz, seeing as how none of the traditional jazz elements are included in this cd.  But overall, I’d really reccomend this to anyone interested in music in general.  There’s not much to dislike about it.
