Mew was the last band I ever discovered because of MTV.

2000, it was. Imagine finding something this grand and brave on MTV today. The network is now a benchmark of the middle ground and reality TV. Where would we hear this voice now? In between The Hills and 16 and Pregnant?

But they were glorious, and however we found them, we’re grateful to be in a world where Comforting Sounds was born. A near 9 minute opus, it’s 2/3 instrumental and 3/3 awesome.
