A Must For All Frengers

Mew has always walked a fine line between accessibility and experimentalism, between art rock and pop, and we Frengers (not quite friends, but not quite strangers) always find ourselves coming back to a sound we don't find anywhere else. For those of us lucky enough to have been to a live show, this release is long overdue. Unlike a few other reviewers, I don't think Jonas's voice sounds different or "off" here; in fact, there is something very honest about his live delivery. And the instrumentation is, well, as sick as ever. I don't want to mislead you, though. This isn't a really polished sound. Mew's first two albums, a Triumph for Man and Half the World is Watching Me, were more stripped down, less produced affairs, and some of that sound makes its way into the live music, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's definitely mine. It's refreshing in the landscape of overproduced corporate rock. Plus, until now U.S. fans haven't been able to hear any of the songs from the two earlier albums unless they have the imports (A Triumph for Man has been re-released in Denmark in a two-disc set). "Saliva," "Mica," and "Panda", though arranged as a piano medley here, will introduce fans to some of that earlier work. And for those who want to hear a few live versions of familiar songs from Frengers (still Mew's masterpiece), or And the Glass Handed Kites (their slightly too experimental, but still incredibly stunning, showcase album) will be pleased by what they find.

Best live band ever...

I had a chance to see these guys two nights in a row in Tokyo back in 2005... I still think about those shows at least once a day. All versions are amazingly done here, but Envoy in particular. Jonas' vocal in the opening blurs the line between scary and beautiful in a way that only they 9and the cure) can do. To refer to this band as Emo is an insult and a lie.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The members of space pop innovators Mew first met in the seventh grade in Hellerup, Denmark. Before they could even play instruments, the ambitious youths — singer Jonas Bjerre, guitarist Bo Madsen, bassist Johan Wohlert, and drummer Silas Graae — were ready to make music together, although they initially failed as a band called Orange Dog. Madsen briefly spent time in the United States before the guys came back together in their late teens as Mew. Inspired by My Bloody Valentine, the...
