180g Blue Sea Foam Wave Vinyl LP!
Deluxe Edition With Autographed Lithograph!
Loss and hope, isolation and communion, the cessation and renewal of purpose. These themes echo throughout the fifth album from Midlake, their first since Antiphon (2013). Reuniting with intense focus after a long hiatus, the result is For the Sake Of Bethel Woods - an album with tremendous thematic and sonic reach, produced to layered, loving perfection by John Congleton. It's a record full of immersive warmth and mystery from a band of ardent seekers, one of their generation's finest.
Re-emerging after a nine-year gap, [Midlake's] fifth album, For the Sake of Bethel Woods, retains some of the progressive experimentation of its predecessor without losing sight of its sturdy core of songs. In producer John Congleton, Midlake has found a worthy foil and he helps imbue highlights like the gorgeous 'Feast of Carrion' and 'Meanwhile...' with a sense of elegance and mystique. Their harmony-rich blend and talent for dynamic arrangements are as engaging as ever, especially on the propulsive 'Bethel Woods' and the shapeshifting 'Exile.'
