    My band Firesuite have a new song, would really like to get everyones opinion. We’re influenced by many bands, Mew being a major one. Anyway, it’s called ‘Edge Of The Earth’, go have a listen –

  • You know…I’ve been reading the pre-release interviews and even the reviews that are starting to appear, and can’t help but feeling a little disappointed that they’re (the band and press) retrofitting “No More Stories…” to fit the current narrative. The story now seems to be the album is seen as a bit of a black sheep, unfocused and messy,…[Read more]

    • Yeah, I have noticed this. When “No More Stories” was released, the band distanced themselves from the ‘Prog’ of ‘Glass-Handed Kites’ and said that NMS was more direct, and more the sound of a band actually playing in a room. I remember when No More Stories was released, I thought that it sounded like a big melting pot of ideas, things hashed out…[Read more]

    • I think the band overstates the “cloud of ideas” perspective to further enhance the “directness” of +-. Also maybe to add a little bit to the saviour/long lost son title they have been giving Johan since he came back.

        Yeah…just feels unnecessary. I don’t feel NMS is problematic at all, and certainly doesn’t warrant being thought of in a negative way. It’s a major achievement. Just seems odd

    • I listened to all the albums over the weekend in anticipation for the stream, and NMS is still my favourite (not including +-, dunno where that sits yet).

      I always saw “No More Stories…” as a black sheep. Not an album I ever recommended for first time listners as it is so complex. I feel like you need to have knowledge of Mews previous work to really get the full picture of “Stoires…”

      Frengers and Kites were way more approachable and had many more mainstream “hits”. I don’t think I ever heard…[Read more]

      Where did you hear this?

    • Hi!
      Where did you read about the streaming next week?! I cant seem to find any info about this on drownedinsound.com

        Same. Mew being autocorrected to “new” and “+-” being practically unsearchable on Google makes for bad bad bad internetting.

      Do you have to be a member of the site to do so?

        No you don’t need to be a member. I think possibly it might be an exclusive stream though
