Inside The Rockers Studio: Midlake, Plus Exclusive “Young Bride” Remix

We’ve got an exclusive new Midlake tune for ya today. The ’70s-lovin’ Texans’ acclaimed Trials Of Van Occupanther gets a domestic release next week.

For this remix of “Young Bride” the band’s enlisted the Cure’s “Roger O’Donnell” and his trusty Moog. Spacey!

Midlake – “Young Bride” (Roger O’Donnell Remix) (MP3)

My Name Is Earl’s Jason Lee says, “The Trials of Van Occupanther is now one of the most important modern records I own. In an age of overly-used irony and disconnected nonchalance, this record actually means something, and Midlake should be forever hailed for their unique and genuine approach to music. Simply put, Van Occupanther has backbone, and the fact that you don’t feel cheated by it gives one hope that sincerity can still exist within modern alternative music.”

Jason named his son after a song from Sophtware Slump, so there’s a good chance his next kid will be named Roscoe.

If you dig O’Donnell’s “Bride,” check out this new Casettes Won’t Listen remix too.
