About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    Those are two of my favorite Mew songs, nice picks. As much press as the new album is receiving, I still prefer the older stuff. The thing that really characterizes Mew, at least to me, isn’t proggy density, but rather the soaring vocals and hooks. Their AOL Interface set is quite good as well.

    Keep up the good work!
