I Try To Describe My Favorite Music

Wild Sweet Orange - Stupid Chords
Wild Sweet Orange - House of Regret

I can't find these guys's album anywhere, yet, but it should be out soon and I'm excited. The feel and structure of the songs remind me of Bright Eyes, but I can't decide if it feels derivative or older and more mature.

Midlake - Roscoe

Midlake - Head Home

I can't get this song about being born in another time and place, Roscoe, out of my head. It feels medieval and T-Rex inspired. Their new album, The Trials of Van Occupanther, is definitely worth picking up.

For a couple of weeks, until I got the Midlake album in the mail, this is all I could listen to. Some people say they remind them of old Smashing Pumpkins. The link above is to an applet on their website.

i would say that roscoe is more fleetwood mac inspired than t rex... but then again, one of my favorite things about this band is that they never cash out too much of their influence in any one place, so you can never quite place it... I LOVE THIS ALBUM.

Re: midlake
You're probably right, I haven't heard enough of Fleetwood Mac, or even T Rex.

It is a great album, though!
