Midlake (updated)

I didn't like Midlake until I heard playing in a second hand clothes shop the other day (thanks to Shazam for identifying it for me).

Despite having grown up an indie kid, I don't really get that whole North American indie intelligentsia Arcade Fire/Interpol/Shins/Bright Eyes thing apart from a couple of tracks here and there. This is one of those tracks - it's kind of beautiful.

It also reminds me a little of The Last Time I Saw Richard by Joni Mitchell, possibly my favourite track from possibly my favourite album of all time, Blue

Midlake - Bandits (iTunes)
