Mew-The Zookeeper's Boy

Mew reminds me of Mae, in name, and a bit in sound. Mew also makes me think of Japan, which Mae also does, for some reason. But Mew is not from Japan--in fact, like many other premier indie pop musicians of our time, they are from Europe. Denmark, to be specific (not Sweden?!). Anyway, they are rather ten times better than Mae could hope to be, and produce such complex, layered pop. Yes, pop, and not prog rock or indie rock, for never have indie rock been so infectious, with such sprinkled sweetness in the vocals and the instruments--with hints of the prog rock in the pushing guitars and melody, yes, but also with precious lyrics and spinning glass circles of blissful pop music.
