is distributed around the Metroplex, our stand on the new disc from the Denton-based Midlake
, The Courage of Others
, which is due out statesdide on February 2, will be made known. But plenty of others have already made their positions on the new, darker disc from the five-piece available for your reading--some have been positive
, others not so much

Check it out. But, consider yourselves warned: There will be flutes.
