Thanks to the good folks over at NPR, everyone can stream the Denton, TX band Midlake‘s new album, Courage of Others, a week before its official release on February 2.
Their first album since Trials of Van Occupanther, Midlake shows progress toward a darker sound. I read in an interview that they had listened to classic British folk while preparing to write this album, and the influence lightly resounds through the album.

You won’t be disappointed. Let me know what you think.
