August 25, 2009


Danish rockers Mew seemingly evaporated after 2005’s And the Glass Handed Kites made epic prog-rock lovers salivate. But now we get a glimpse as to what they were doing the last four years. “Beach”, the most immediately likable track off their newest album, No more stories are told today.  I’m sorry they washed away. No more stories the world is grey. I’m tired.  Let’s wash away. The multiple-sentence album title is fitting for the songs’ content, as the album is constantly changing structure, tone and melody, often within a single song. “Beach” is as close as Mew as come to crafting a perfect pop song– wait til you hear that chorus.
