Music for your Midweek: Mew

Here's a band that's been breaking my heart lately: Mew

A little bit of Jonsi, a little bit of pinback, a little bit of the flaming lips.

Also, their lyrics are endearing and oddly prescient:

"If I don't make it back from the city
Then it is only because I am drawn away
For you see, evidently there's a dark storm coming
And the chain on my swing is squeaking like a mouse

So are you my lady, are you?
So are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain"

He's singing to Sandy.
