Required listening from the week in music.

The pastoral folk pop on Midlake's "Courage of Others" will appeal to fans of Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles and other "quiet riot" hipster bands. Meanwhile, the trippy album cover, with the band all wearing monk robes, should appeal to hardcore Yes fans.

Also in stores:
-- "Teen Dream" is the latest collection of moody dream pop from Beach House. For a band with such a sunny name, they sure make some gorgeously mopey music.
-- While the rap/rock sound on Lil Wayne's "Rebirth" is getting panned, you have to admire the chutzpah of anyone who would drop a major album right before heading to prison.
-- You couldn't pay us to listen to Rob Zombie's "Hellbilly Deluxe 2," but the song titles ("Werewolf, Baby!", "Mars Needs Women") are more than a little awesome. (There's even a song named after "Werewolf Women of the SS," his hilarious fake trailer from Grindhouse.)
