Midlake, a band of Denton, Texas indie rockers, is prepped to release The Courage of Others on February 2, 2010 on Bella Union. Until then, the album is streaming it its entirety over at NPR. The single, “Acts of Man,” is a somber rumination on man’s troubled history with nature. And, I think I hear a flute in there.
To get you ready for The Courage of Others, Midlake premiered this trailer for a short film, directed by Jason Lee (yes, of My Name is Earl).
