neat stuff. i really need to listen to more than just Frengers (which is awesome).
Best news. Band is awesome.
Really enjoyed quite a few tracks off No More Stories... Will have to listen later when I've got good headphones.
Digging: Joywave - How Do You Feel Now?
Great news, band rule.
@darkocean, have you heard Frengers?
this track is so good
i really need to listen to more than just Frengers 
Frengers is incredible thought, their whole discography is great tbh.
Listen to the rest
Didn't know these guys were still around.
Frengers is not even as good as the PERFECT "And The Glass Handed Kites"
Listen to that album 5-10 times and tell me it's not one of the best albums ever made.
'And the Glass Handed Kites' progressive pop/dream pop, prog rock masterpiece.
Digging: Metallica - Hardwired... to Self-Destruct
Sorry kill, it doesn't have to sound like queensryche to be progressive.
prog(ish) rock. the song Chinaberry Tree
Very unlike Rush, King Crimson, Yes etc.
Mew are progressive pop/rock, pretty easy to understand
no its not
We'll have to agree to disagree
I would describe them as Alt Rock/Dream Pop primary genre, and progressive pop/rock secondary genre.
At least, that's how I describe the 2006 version of Mew.
Now they are mostly a dream pop / indie / idontknowwhatthefuck genre.
glass handed kites is prog rock. frengers is alt rock. no more stories (and their first two albums) are dream pop. one of the most creative bands in the world right now.
I still need to listen to no more stories
i've never seen mew as a prog band at all, especially not frengers, which is the album i've listened to the most
Glass Handed Kites is essential. All you posers go listen to it right now.
Mew called Glass Handed Kites "dreamy thunderstorm pop", so there you go.
this makes me feel like it's 2010 again
everyone in this thread is gay
they are not one of the most creative bands in the world right now but they are awesome at making catchy pop tunes
their use of instrumentation is very forward-thinking. listen to no more stories. its not just some album of catchy tunes
Yeah the way I see Mew is they make catchy music in the most unpredictable and fascinating way possible, and they wrap irresistible melodies around complex time signatures and make it work because hell, they're Mew
yea i dont dig em
ive only heard frengers and it was actually too fruity
Digging: Amon Tobin - Out From Out Where
Yea I dig!
