Midlake, a prog-folkish indie-rock band from Denton, Tex., named its fourth album, “Antiphon,” after the liturgical practice of response singing, often delivered by a congregation after a citation of Scripture. Under the circumstances, this rings of an earnest declaration of purpose or a desperate glimmer of hope. Maybe both.
Around this time last year, Midlake’s chief singer and songwriter, Tim Smith, left the band to start making music under the moniker Harp. Rather than falling to pieces, the group, which formed in 1999, made major adjustments: Eric Pulido, its lead guitarist, stepped into the foreground as a singer, and the songwriting became a communal affair.
Mr. Pulido favors the same warmblooded but affectless style, often laying into his open vowels as if to evoke a French horn. “Antiphon” still reflects Midlake’s admiration for late-’60s psychedelic folk and early-’70s folk-rock, though the rhythms skew more muscular than before. – NY Times
Born and bred on a mountainside in the Catskills, singer-songwriter Elijah Wolf-Christensen spent his days surrounded by nature. After many years honing his skills, he self-released his debut EP, As Tall as the Sun, in July 2012 while attending the Studio Composition program at SUNY Purchase. He then began working with the bassist and arranger Gianluca Minnuci and violinist Kenneth Trotter–both fellow students and close friends. It became clear that they each had mutually beneficial talents, and decided to make their collaboration a lasting project. Thus Elijah & the Moon was formed. Bringing together the honest roots folk of the Hudson Valley, a full and energetic rock band feel, and conservatory training, Elijah & the Moon is always excited to share their message with anyone willing to listen.
