Danish experimental dream-pop trio Mew return with the triumphant No More Stories, a towering follow-up to their critically acclaimed breakthrough And The Glass Handed Kites.
On their fifth album, Mew pushes their artfully weird style -- overlapping, unexpected harmonies and heaven-bound vocals -- into a warm, accessible collection of songs with more stick-in-your-head hooks than words.
"Yeah, the title sounds pretty bleak," admits singer Jonas Bjerre. "It comes from having watched a lot of TV when I was a kid. I feel like I've been told so many stories in my life I don't need to hear anymore, and so I've kind of given up on being impressed by stories. But the cover art is really happy and colorful and it shows the positive side -- which is to go out, become part of the world, and make your own stories." From the Label

I heard these guys when I was in Oslo years ago, and I fell in love with their music. I subsequently bought all of their CDs and was not disappointed. I bought this new one "aurally blind", and I don't think they can top this one. The only word that I can use to describe this CD is gestalt. It's perfect.
