When Midlake was dealt a game-changing blow, the band was left to decide if they wanted to quit or reinvent themselves.

The Denton, Texas band lost their frontman in 2012, and they chose the latter, with guitarist Eric Pulido taking over lead vocals and the rest of the band joining him to step up and help with song-writing. Pulido told NPR that the new roles led to more looseness and jam sessions in the studio and a generally more spontaneous sound as a band. Midlake's first Pulido-led album is called "Antiphon," or, as it translates from Greek, "opposite voice."

"It's Going Down," which Midlake performed when they recently stopped by the KDHX studios, sounds like a cut off a Band of Horses or Fleet Foxes record, with an ensemble of wistful, moody voices backing Pulido. As a whole, the session sounds free and adventurous, with joyful harmonies.

Sometimes, unexpected change works out for the best.
