[Untitled] - Very Good, Based on 3 Critics

DIY Magazine - 80
Based on rating 4/5

Across their 15 year lifespan, Philadelphia's mewithoutYou have floated effortlessly between genres with complete disregard for traditional restraints. From the relentless hard punk of debut album 'A>B Life' to the breezy folk of the Neutral Milk hotel-indebted 'It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All A Dream! It's Alright!' and 2015's post-hardcore-influenced 'Pale Horses', they're never a band to stand still. These seemingly opposing states blend together wonderfully on their two new releases.

Pitchfork - 75
Based on rating 7.5/10

This is how mewithoutYou's 2015 album, Pale Horses, ends: In its closing seconds, frontman Aaron Weiss narrates a dream in which he becomes his own father; in the background, a series of guitar notes brighten and blur as if melting away in the fallout of a nuclear blast. The sky splits open. Protons collide in the empty air. Buildings burst apart and scatter weightless as dandelion seeds.

Their review was positive

mewithoutYou is a band whose evolution has been quite a pleasure to enjoy. Their later records feel way more cinematic than their older indie/folk takes, but whether they go atmospheric, louder, acoustic or soft and melodramatic, whatever they do registers. Saying mwY make any sound work is an understatement, and here [Untitled] is another brilliant example how much this rings true.
