This is exactly what I wanted to hear from Mew – so thrilled to have them back.
Right there with you. It’s my most anticipated album.
Perhaps I’m in the minority, but I think Sea of Love is one of their absolute best songs.
Thanks for the tip about Harvard of the South – I’ve been hoping in vain for a new Longwave album since Secrets are Sinister came out (really a return to form for them…I love that album). I caught them on that tour a few times and they were fantastic. Hard to believe I found them through MTV2 Subterranean!
If you heard this out of context, would you even know it’s Taylor Swift? Honestly could be anyone.
Does this song remind anyone of Sugar Ray’s “Fly”? The verse is…pretty similar, with a more straight-up beat.
I love The Heinreich Manuever and Who Do You Think…but I do agree with you that they started heavily emphasizing Daniel’s lead guitar lines in each song, where certainly TOTBL didn’t really do that. But you could see that coming in Antics, with songs like Narc, and now that’s their signature sound. But to me, it was always about the bass/drums with the guitar as atmospherics.
Don’t Stop Believin’! But I’m pretty sure it’s a fade out. Otherwise iTunes would make everyone re-DL the song. Usually single-edits are released as a stand alone scenario.
I need a place to talk about Mew. My favorite song is A Dark Design. But man, all of their albums are insanely terrific.
You can buy the song on iTunes now – album version is only 4:22, so it doesn’t seem like there are any changes.
