Again, I've meditated long and hard as to whether to post this one at ppop, even though I love the song and even though song and album appeared on myriad Best of 06 lists. The time has come to do the deed. Midlake formed deep in the heart of North Texas back in 2000. "Roscoe" is on their third album, The Trials of Van Occupanther. But wait, you can read more here and here or just hear. I must confess my pants never got in a bunch over the opening riff, further evidence of my lack of critical acumen.
