Amoeba Review

11/04/2013

The word "pleasant" can be used in a negative connotation when discussing music. However, in the case of Midlake, their music is pleasant in the truest sense, creating an immediate pleasure with their trance-inducing soft rock. The arrangements roll through comfortably, intricate yet never feeling contrived, making tasteful aesthetic references of Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd, while their manly harmonies make all of the band's psychedelic touches go down smoothly. Yet because of that quality, Midlake's songs can sneak up behind you and knock you flat when you least expect it, like how "The Old and the Young" builds from a soft thump to spine-tingling choruses, or how "Corruption" moves from billowy to ominous and back in a breath. Antiphon doesn't shake you by the shoulders but rather whispers in your ear, getting under your skin before you even know it. Give it a listen and it just might do the same for you.
