Midlake 4 Life

Something about these new Midlake tracks seems appropriate for the season. It's the cold end of the year, the ground is hard, the leaves have dropped dead and we too can let the past drop from our memories - and then we can start again.

There's a "Greensleeves" quality to Acts of Man with its fireplace warmth, gentle acoustic guitars, flutes and soiled mix that seems out of time, haunted and wrapped in ivy. I can't tell if he's singing about the wicked in power or just dethroning himself. Either way, I'm down.

Let's live in full this year. Happy holidays.
