Denton based band Midlake (Eric Pulido, McKenzie Smith, Eric Nichelson, Jesse Chandler and Joey McClellan) have released a new album called For The Sake of Bethel Woods whichis out now via Bella Union. According to the press release, Loss and hope, isolation and communion, the cessation and renewal of purpose. Timeless and salient, these themes echo throughout the fifth album from Midlake, their first since Antiphon in 2013. Produced to layered, loving perfection by John Congleton, For the Sake of Bethel Woods is an album of immersive warmth and mystery from a band of ardent seekers, one of our generation’s finest: a band once feared lost themselves by fans, perhaps, but here revivified with freshness and constancy of intent.
