A quiet word-of-mouth success, Midlake’s 70’s influenced rock, born in Denton TX out of a quintet of jazz students from the University of N. Texas; intially gained popularity in Europe on the Bella Union imprint. Much like the band itself, their debut record, “Bamnan & Silvercork” was recorded at their home in Denton and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road studios in, well London.

Their 2006 follow-up, “The Trials of Van Occupanther” and the lead track (Roscoe) was recently given the remix treatment by (Superstar)DJ’s Erol Alkan & Richard Norris and distributed freely -no ‘fringement-.

With a recent contribution (The Pills Won’t Help You Now) to The Chemical Brothers latest offering, “We Are the Night” and a growing awareness among the internet elite, Midlake is poised to be the next band that you claim to have heard of a loooong time ago, next year.
