Rare Midlake EP To Get Reissued

Rare Midlake EP To Get Reissued

Midlake's 2001 seven-track EP 'Milkmaid Grand Army' is to be reissued due to massive demand on November 28.

The twenty five minute, self-produced debut EP has become a collector's item since it's release, as the initial pressing was a modest 1000 copies.

The Texan band decided not to make any more copies of the record, until now. Their popularity has surged since releasing their second album 'The Trials of Van Occupanther' trhough Bella Union Records last year.

The 'Milkmaid Grand Army' tracklisting is:

"She Removes Her Spiral Hair" - 3:38
"Paper Gown" - 4:30
"Excited But Not Enough" - 4:18
"I Lost My Bodyweight In The Forest" - 1:18
"Simple" - 3:49
"Roller Skate (Farewell June)" - 3:34
"Golden Hour" - 3:41

Midlake have been touring extensively throughout this year, including playing to a packed main stage at this year's Latitude festival and plan to start recording their third full length album at the end of the year, after an Autumn headline tour of the US.

The 3rd Uncut Playlist Of 2015

Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on - swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would've liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of "Vulnicura" a couple of months ahead of schedule.
