New Midlake - "Roscoe"
We can't take credit for discovering this fantastic Midlake tune (it's already been posted on a dozen other MP3 blogs), but "Roscoe" is definitely worth the 7MB on your hard drive. I love how it kicks off with some '70s synth and a mellow guitar riff that wouldn't sound out of place on the Wet Hot American Summer soundtrack.
They're a great band. I used to live in New Orleans several years ago, and they played a lot there, even opening for my friend's band a few times. You could tell they had massive potential. Bamnan and Silvercork is definitely worth picking up as is their first EP whose name escapes me right now. I think the last time they played NYC was two years ago at the Living Room during CMJ...they are clearly due for another visit.
i saw these guys in austin in may, and they were great live. i soon after bought Banman and Silvercork , and have been listening to it on and off since. i love their sound, but the new track is a little... edgier(?), and i love it. thanks!
