You know, sometimes you forget just how good - how superbly wonderful - The Beatles were, especially if you haven't listened to them in a while.A group from the middle of the last century called The Beatles, with an album named Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
What a fabulous album sleeve; what is the music like?
Excellent album. Great feel to it. I was not as keen on their output after this one but just my personal view.I saw these guys perform live in 2011 or 2012 at a small venue here, and hadn't heard a note of their music before that. The surprise was a pretty big one, as the line up that night was a bit more "modern", perhaps, than the style of music Midlake play. Best show of the evening for sure, and this song specifically still pops up in my head from time to time even now, almost ten years later. They have a nice folk-rockish sound that harkens back to the 60's/70's, which is never a bad thing.
Fun fact: For the longest time, for some reason, I thought these guys were from Estonia. Don't ask me how I arrived at that conclusion, but they're actually from Texas.
The Waterboys (and Mike Scott) are brilliant.The Waterboys - "Where the Action Is" Mike Scott is one fine writer.

Love so many of his songs. One of my brothers saw him perform out west somewhere. Said the show was great, Cale very professional but low key, not standoffish, just a little shy and completely unassuming: he got off the bus, said hey, did a sound check, did the show, hung around and talked with anybody wanted to talk with him, got back on the bus and took off. The bro said it was sort of like how a video would have looked if Cale made one for If You're Ever in Oklahoma (from the Really album):The recently released "Stay Around" by JJ Cale. He is really missed. What a great sound he had. I was lucky to see him live in Montreal a number of years ago. Great times.
Yeah I haven't honestly listened to much else from them, apart from a couple of songs here and there, so I can't really say. The Trials of Van Occupanther, though, is a great album like you said.Excellent album. Great feel to it. I was not as keen on their output after this one but just my personal view.
Reminds me somehow of Lisa Gerrard & Peter Bourke in Sacrifice ( from OST of The Insider).. but there's no little break for a nice French horn solo in the unrelenting suffering of Sacrifice...
That song has a bit more orchestral sound perhaps, but sure, some elements (especially the vocals in the beginning) bring DCD to mind. I always liked the Halo soundtracks, as well as the games. It's been years since I last played pretty much anything on a console, but Halo was one of the favorites back then.
Nice - cool - love some of the Anathema stuff - never heard that one - thanks!Being pretty fond of Anathema, the name Duncan Patterson was the thing that first caught my interest in regards to this band, it's a good thing it turned out that the album is absolutely brilliant.
