Originally released in 2003 by Danish-based band Mew,Â FrengersÂ caught critical acclaim very quickly. Combining elements of alt/indie rock, pop, and even shoegaze, this album fell onto the radar of many from around the world.
To date,Â Frengers has only seen one pressing on vinyl ( /500) outside of this SRC release. It has sold for as low as $95~ and as much as $372~ via Discogs… Quite a demand there!
This pre-order went live this morning and sold 300 out of the 500 White copies within 15 minutes. They’re still available but I wouldn’t imagine for long.
I’ll let you fine folks check this one out before it’s gone!

Frengers is the third album by Danish band Mew, originally released in April 2003. The title is a portmanteau of the words friend and stranger. A frenger is a person who is "not quite a friend but not quite a stranger" according to the album's accompanying booklet.
Six of the album's ten tracks were previously included on Mew's first two albums Half The World Is Watching Me and A Triumph For Man, both of which saw only limited release until they were subsequently rereleased internationally, but were rerecorded for Frengers. The other four are original recordings. The song "Her Voice Is Beyond Her Years" features vocals from Swedish singer Stina Nordenstam and "Symmetry" features vocals from 14 year old Georgian Becky Jarrett. The Japanese version of Frengers also included the rerecordings of earlier songs, "I Should Have Been a Tsin-Tsi (For You)" and "Wherever".
