UK band ME REX began as the solo project of Myles McCabe, but eventually expanded into a full band that also features Kathryn Woods (Fresh, Cheerbleederz), Rich Mandel (Happy Accidents), and Phoebe Cross (Happy Accidents, Cheerbleederz). They released the double EP Triceratops / Stegosaurus last year, and now they're set to follow it with a very unique, 52-song album called Megabear on June 18 via Big Scary Monsters (pre-order). The premise of the album is that each track ranges from 30-60 seconds, and no matter what order you play it in, it's meant to sound like a cohesive song cycle where each track flows right into the next.
"As you might be able to tell, I am a big fan of kind of building in contradictions," Myles said in an interview with Miranda Reinert for Stereogum. "So it’s this cynical statement and it’s a half-hour piece of art. And it’s one song and it’s 50 songs. And there’s no intentionality, but also there are set orders."
