Midland Releases New 5-Song Acoustic EP, “Guitars, Couches, Etc., Etc.” [Listen to “Drinkin’ Problem”]

With a clever nod to one of their influences, Midland released a new five-song EP, Guitars, Couches, Etc., Etc., on May 29.

The new EP’s moniker pays homage to Dwight Yoakam’s 1986 debut album, Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc.

Midland—the trio comprised of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson—stripped down five songs from their catalogue for the acoustic EP, including current single, “Cheatin’ Songs,” as well as chart-topper “Drinkin’ Problem,” “Burn Out” and more.

“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,” says Mark. “It was medicinal to pick these songs back up and re-interpret them in a new way both recording wise and in the arrangements and colorings. We hope you enjoy these new iterations as much as we did making em.”

Listen to “Drinkin’ Problem” below.
