mewithoutYou – [Untitled] LP
Pennsylvania-based band mewithouYou continue in their mission to spread the gospel of post-hardcore righteousness. As before, this album balances the soft-edged post rock with the heavier intensity of their hardcore origins (taking their inspiration from a mix of Fugazi, Sunny Day Real Estate and Neutral Milk Hotel). On this, their seventh album, they show a return to their middle period (circa Brother Sister): after the teen-angst of the first albums, and before the odd-ball nursery hymns of the more recent It’s All Crazy… and Ten Stories. A natural step forwards from their last album of 2015, Pale Horses (and probably better, too). This version of [Untitled] comes direct from Run For Cover Records (unlike the UK version on Big Scary Monsters) and includes a lyric booklet packaged in a high quality tip-on jacket with spot-gloss features.
