Mew’s long player Frengers: Not Quite Friends But Not Quite Strangers came out of nowhere in 2003. Danish, alternative, dreamlike, full of harmony and completely unexpected. ‘Am I Wry? No’, ‘Snow Brigade’, ‘Symmetry’ and ‘She Came Home For Christmas’ create waves of atmospheric alt rock, you’ll be be doing well to make it all the way through to the ‘Comforting Sounds’ in one sitting. And there, you’ll find what sounds like prog rock to me. Love it.
