Danish indie-prog-rock/noisemeisters, Mew return following a somewhat extended hiatus with the brand new album + - (pronounced "plus minus"). The album features the band's original line up - Jonas Bjerre (vocals), Bo Madsen (guitar), Johan Wohlert (bass) and Silas Utke Graae Jorgensen (drums) - and is preceded by lead single "Satellite."
Like their peers Sigur Ros and Tame Impala, the new music on + - truly soars. It's alive, vibrant and spacious. Its skewed sensibilities coupled with an ever expansive musical backdrop denotes the extremities of Mew's creative DNA, showing once more a band treading its own unique path.
The album was recorded in Copenhagen, produced by Grammy-nominated Michael Beinhorn (Hole, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Mew with mixing duties undertaken by Rich Costey. + - also features an appearance from Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack on "My Complications." Isolated, idiosyncratic, stubbornly individual – in the studio or on stage - there really is only one Mew. All pluses, no minuses.
