Although we were not previously familiar with the music of Danish band Mew prior to their set opening for NIN at Terminal 5 on Wednesday, like much of the crowd by the end of the epic “Comforting Sounds” we were duly impressed with the band’s excellent mix of prog, 80s synth and Euro-style pop. The musical proficiency was obvious and the song structures were imaginative. Mew took advantage of the crowd’s unfamiliarity with the material to perform five consecutive songs from their brand new release No More Stories, which is said to contain a more pop focus than their previous releases.

The set was recorded from the identical location as the NIN recording, with the identical equipment from the first half of NIN. The crowd was not nearly as packed for this set, and as a result there is less of “din” during the quiet moments. Enjoy!
