midlake

Three years ago Midlake released their sophomore album The Trials of Van Occupanther, one of the most underrated albums of the decade. In a press release yesterday, the band’s label Bella Union squashed the mystery surrounding Midlake’s third album, The Courage of Others. According to the press release, the new album (out February 1st, 2010) has a “definitely British, trad-tainted folk sound” and is “a slower, darker and more carved record [than Van Occupanther], both eerier and dreamier”.

The Courage of Others:

Acts of Man
Winter Dies
Small Mountain
Core of Nature
Fortune
Rulers, Ruling All Things
Children of the Grounds
Bring Down
The Horn
The Courage of Others
In The Ground

Until then, the soundtrack for the album (featuring The Life & Times, The Appleseed Cast and many more) is available at the cost of one email address here.

The trailer for the film can be viewed here.
