Midlake - Roscoe

Denton, Texas based band, Midlake, was formed in 1999 by a group of jazz students at the University of North Texas. Their music consisted of funk/jazz explorations heavily influenced by Herbie Hancock then moving more toward a more indie-rock sound.

Roscoe is a lo-fi indie-rock turn off the uniquely named release, The Trials of Van Occupanther. Midlake doesn't jump out and make you say Wow, but their music has a quality that make you go back and listen again and build up an appreciation for it.
