Midlake is currently on tour with Exitfare favorites Sound Team and Cold War Kids, bringing their brand of North Texas-influenced Americana and folk to Boston next week. Their new album, The Trials of Van Occupanther, drops on Tuesday via Bella Union and reaches further into a bag that is filled with nods to '70s folk rock and Fleetwood Mac to avoid that evil hex called the sophomore slump. This record didn't hit me at first, but the more I listen to it, the more I can't put it down.
