Midlake is a 5-piece band from the small town of Denton, Texas. They were discovered by Simon Raymonde (of Cocteau Twins fame) and became a part of his Bella Union label. The song you are listening to is from the band's upcoming release The Trials of Van Occupanther. You can hear more on their MySpace page and also get more info from the official Midlake website.I think Q music magazine summed it up nicely in a review of the band I found on their site: "Not since Mercury Rev's Deserter's Songs has an American band sounded so completely of itself, so off kilter, and quite so bewitching."
