I read about this last week or so.

Stupid title, and an ugly cover. Haven't listened to that song yet.

Mew are a strange band. They have some undeniably amazing songs, but then there are others that are frustratingly average.

Comforting Sounds is still their high watermark, if you ask me.

It just wouldn't be Mew if they didn't have a totally shithouse album cover.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Do you actually like Family Guy that much? If so, I honestly feel sorry for you.

They finally have a new album coming out in August, 4 years after Glass Handed. The title......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.

Yeah, that's seriously the title.



You can hear a song (which I don't care much for) from it here:
Introducing Palace Players
wow, i think that tops that fiona apple album for most ridiculously long title ever.
