Did you miss us?

The Long Winter is over, and we have just now begun to thaw and crawl out of our hibernation caves to bring to you new and wonderful tunes.

Firstly and most importantly, mewithoutYou’s Pale Horses was released on Tuesday via Run For Cover. It is their first release since signing to the new label, and producer/wizard Will Yip has once again used his sonic sorcery to bring to us one of the best records of the year so far (and probably for the rest of the year, if we’re being honest, which we always are). As a long time fan of the band I (and I think I speak for us all) can say that Pale Horses undoubtedly ranks among their best work. It combines all the classic elements of previous records, including a revisitation of Brother, Sister‘s “C-Minor” with “D-Minor.” It features a mix of calming melodies and powerful riffs mixed with Aaron Weiss’ versatile, moving vocals and unparalleled ability to weave words. Prepare yourself for 39 minutes of nonstop chills. If you’re able, please catch the band on their national tour with Foxing for a truly unforgettable experience (with acoridans!).
