This album has been growing on me a lot lately. And now they have a new album called Nolens Volens due out next month, so you can expect that to be posted on here, too. The album itself is a brilliant blend of pop-rock riffs and slightly folkish sounds with some pretty great lyrics thrown in. I’ve been completely hooked the past two weeks, and I highly recommend everyone give this a try.

First off, I’d like to apologize that this upload is in m4a format at 256kbps.  But, it IS a leak, so that’s to be expected.  This album differs greatly from his first album, which was primarily acoustic songs with just him and his guitar.  “Shadow of an Empire” is all about electric guitars, drums, bluesy-sounding riffs, but the same old folksy songwriting.  Great album.  I suggest you pick it up if you’ve heard his first album.  As with the Midlake leak, I’ll re-upload and repost this when the album is officially released, with a better format and bitrate.

EDIT: The download link has been removed by request of Fionn’s label.  If you click the album art, you’re going to be taken to his myspace where you can listen to some of the new singles.  It really is a fantastic album, and I suggest you buy it as soon as it comes out.  Sorry for the inconvenience to anyone who didn’t get a chance to download.

I recently came across this album after seeing the movie “World’s Greatest Dad” (fantastic movie, by the way) and almost immediately fell in love with it.  Very enjoyable psych-folk.  Reminds me of old 60’s psychedelic bands.

At first, I didn’t particularly enjoy this as much as their other albums, but its really starting to grow on me.  It’s a solid Folk-Rock album and vintage Midlake.  And this download is a rip from an actual cd, so enjoy the V0 bitrate.

Lately I’ve been completely in love with this album.  It’s, to put it simply, perfect.  All of the songs are catchy and the lyrics are some of the best I’ve ever heard.  One of the best to come out of 2008.  Get it.  And then, if you like it, get their other album The Meaning of 8.  Very good band that I can assure you, you haven’t seen the last of on Htbsr.
