KXT 91.7 Presents Midlake at Tulips FTW on Friday, November 26. Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. This event is for all ages.
Indie Folk Rock pioneers Midlake formed in Denton, Texas, in 1999. Currently comprised of Eric Pulido, McKenzie Smith, Eric Nichelson, Jesse Chandler, and Joey McClellan, the band has released four studio albums to date. Their most recent release Antiphom was released to high praise with Mojo naming it “Album of the Month” saying, “This fourth LP marks a return to brighter, more breezily melodic territory. The groovesome Stone Roses-produced-by-David Axelrod psychedelic shapes of the title track are utterly upbeat. On Antiphon, Midlake sound like a band unburdened and ready to fly.” Anyone who knows Midlake’s preceding albums will recognize some constituent parts of Antiphon: the quirky psychedelia of 2004 debut Bamnan and Slivercork, the ‘70s soft-rock strains of breakthrough album The Trials Of Van Occupanther and the Brit-folk infusion of 2010’s The Courage Of Others. The band have recently finished work on their 5th full length album. Be on the lookout for more information coming fall 2021.
