Something for the weekend: Midland “Sunrise Tells the Story”

Well that’s it for another week dear reader and we leave you with a band which skirt around the edges of Americana to the point that we’ve not featured them before but hey it’s a Friday and God in heaven they are good. Midland (not to be confused with the dance act of the same name) play hardcore country, the kind you find in forgotten bars in Arizona, New Mexico, parts of Texas, Bakersfield, Reno, wherever the neon’s buzzing, but not quite dead. They have a new EP coming out next week called ‘The Last Resort’ and have today released a video for the lead track from it ‘Sunrise Tells The Story’ which sounds like a lost classic already. If you want to catch them live, they’re hitting the UK in September for a series of dates, all being well which I know you can’t on at the moment but still, third time lucky. Have a good one.
