Midland Release Stripped Down EP
Midland have stripped down some their most popular songs for a new EP called Guitars, Couches, Etc., Etc., which is available everywhere. The five-track project is a nod to one of their influences, Dwight Yoakam, whose debut album was titled Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc. The EP features Midland's current single, "Cheatin' Songs," alongside their previous chart toppers "Drinkin' Problem" and "Burn Out."
Group member Mark Wystrach said, "The title is a bit tongue in cheek with reference to a seminal album that largely influenced this band cut against the strange reality that we've all found ourselves living these last few months . . . It was medicinal to pick these songs back up and re-interpret them in a new way both recording wise and in the arrangements & colorings . . ."
The video for "Cheatin' Songs" includes never-before-seen footage from their one-night-only event at the revived North Hollywood venue Palomino.
