Shuffleathon 2007. Part 7

Midlake – Roscoe

Such a good song. Yes, it wears it’s Fleetwood Macisms on its sleeve, but it manages to sound both beautifully evocative of a certain 1970s scene and completely at home in 2006 as well. The lyrics are as far removed from the Mac as you could get. The album this comes from (“The Trials of Van Occupanther”) is great too. They remind me of Grandaddy in their looking backward at the same time as looking forward.
