Last year, lead singer, guitarist and head songwriter Tim Smith left Midlake, the indie folk-rock band he co-founded in 1999 and helped lead to critical acclaim. That was shocking enough, but perhaps the greatest surprise came with finding that Smith's departure didn't deter the remaining six band members from business as usual.

Iris DeMent has been blessed with one of those voices that plucks you out of your current time and place and transports you to another.
