Midlake stays ahead of its own time by making music that transcends it. The Denton, Texas band's 2006 release The Trials of Van Occupanther, an inspired set of woozy, psychedelic pastoral rock, got fans and bloggers re-evaluating dormant ancestors like Fleetwood Mac, America, Crosby Stills, Nash and Young and Bread-music that has been embedded in the indie world's unconscious (Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear) ever since. On their third album, The Courage of Others, Midlake are still themselves and yet completely reinvented, so much so that between the time they started working on the record and the time they finished it, the title track was re-recorded down to every note, simply because they'd turned into a more ambitious band, with new influences both classic and contemporary, from British folk to Russian cinema. "It didn't sound like us anymore," says frontman/songwriter Tim Smith. "There was a lot of, 'check out this idea,' and 'let's get more into this kind of vibe.' Plus we were getting a lot better musically."
