In Memory
Tina asked me to post something in honor of her Grandmother Thelma who passed away yesterday. What struck me as the right thing is Midlake, an odd little band from Denton, Texas. They hit it big in Europe when the bass player of the Cocteau Twins, who has a record label, took a shine to them. Beyond the obviously gorgeous harmonies, there is something quite unique and wonderful about them, something very nostalgic and (and I don't mean this pejoratively) Midwestern.
