A Sleeper

Indie labels put out some good records that really never meet their potential due to indie label constraints. I think this is one of them. It had its "blog buzz" for a while, and some great UK press, but it faded away as usual. As the year winds down, these 2 tracks stick with me. Think Fleetwood Mac with a feather in your cap..it's Denton, TX's MIDLAKE.

Midlake - Roscoe
Midlake - Head Home

2 good tunes that are indie-emo. The album is Trials Of Van Occupanther, and it came out on Bella Union earlier this year. Buy it at insound. A great stocking stuffer.
