Mew have never played Coachella, have a new album coming out later this year (it was being mixed/mastered in December), and are truly one of the few great relevent bands who haven't played the festival yet.

Their influences include Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure (more Disintegration-era), Sigur Rós, and Dinosaur Jr, among others. I also personally believe Band of Horses have been heavily influenced by this band.

If you haven't heard of them or simply haven't bothered listening, I urge you to. You are truly missing out. I humbly highly recommend they be one of the additions to this year's festival. Hopefully many will voice their agreement. Enjoy the following videos. :)

That middle collection of songs on And The Glass Handed Kites is awesome, and would be cool to see live.

Saw these guys a couple years ago. They were fantastic, but I certainly don't see them being added at this point. They would absolutely require a nighttime spot though. I don't think their music/vibe/setup would work well during the day. Frengers is such an amazing album (not that Kites isn't...).

Perhaps not the greatest thing you've done in your life.

really great band. glass handed kites is breathtaking. saw them at the fonda in hollywood, and their music translates magnificently live. they would make a fantastic addition -- how about outdoor theater during the killers' set???

I was at that show as well. Good show, not sure if its in the 'best ever' category. Good opening bands as well.
