New Mew Stuff

Anyone hear the new mic stuff,,Introducing Palace Players in particular
It sounds very very tight...drums almost quantized sounding
Costley mixed it as far as I know
Not sure yet if it measures against Glass Handed Kites yet

I've only heard the free MP3 that's being promo-blogged.

Has the album leaked already?

They have released a teaser EP on the iTunes music store. It's basically the two songs that you can find online ("Introducing Palace Players" and "Repeaterbeater") and three more songs.

I think it's pretty awesome, I like the more organic feel of the production. As always, they're doing really interesting things with the rhythm section; it's almost like they're deliberately lagging and speeding up to mess with the listener's head - the kick and snare are solid but the drummer is using the hat to throw off the groove and create some tension. I'm loving the new stuff so far.

Wow! Was wondering where they've been. Glass Handed Kites is one of the few recent rock records that I've pretty much loved front to back. I'm excited to hear how they've evolved.
