isle of view/i love you
Midlake's my guest on tomorrow night's SIRIUS Blog Radio show, and their playlist choices might give you some insight into how the band's amazing new record, The Trials of Van Occupanther, came to be. Frontman Tim Smith chose a track by Jimmie Spheeris, an artist I was entirely unfamiliar with prior to hearing this song. In fact, Smith called Spheeris' rare 1971 debut LP Isle of View his "favorite album of all time."
