Quick Review: [Untitled] by mewithoutYou

American rock band mewithoutYou has never followed the trends or moved along the same old tracks that were already marked by others. As a matter of fact, across their career (which now approaches the twenty years) these guys from Philadelphia have always interpreted their role as musicians in the most complete and courageous sense: not only they’ve conducted a continuous research for the spiritual aspect of music, they have also kept experimenting to find the sounds that could match at best their vision of contemporary rock. For this reason it has never been easy to describe the music of mewithoutYou with only a few words. The same applies to their new studio album, called [Untitled], which escapes the simple tags and attributes that we’re used to attach to every band.

Moving with extreme naturalness between exciting and energetic moments and more reflective and spiritual sections, the tracks of [Untitled] travel in a musical dimension that absorbs the improvisation of the prog, the atmosphere of the post rock, the rage of post-hardcore, the riffs of alternative rock and the distortions of indie music, mixing everything with wisdom and elegance.

 

 

The availability of a language that’s so varied and free from preconceptions gives the band the possibility to adapt and tailor their approach against the particular theme that’s addressed by each single songs, with results that are generally positive. As often happens for those bands that make the juxtaposition of styles and the experimentation as the fundamental cornerstones of their style, alongside impressive and beautiful songs we may find sometimes a few less convincing tracks. But leaving aside these sporadic (and physiological) drops in tension, the new LP from the band remains a solid release, and also one where they really managed to unite their post-hardcore roots with a more pronounced melancholic sensibility.

[Untitled] is available on Bandcamp and the album can be also streamed from Spotify.

Highlights: Flee Thou Matadors!, Wendy and Betsy, Another Head for Hydra and the opening track 9:27a.m. 7/29
