Album Notes
"THE MAW are what you could call “Alternative Rock” in the sense of what that meant in the heyday of “Alternative”- “1937” would find a comfortable and welcome home in CD collections alongside Alice in Chains, Tool, Soundgarden and STP; but at the same time, this album has some seriously modern musicianship that will surely draw in audiences who may have been too young to be into the ‘90’s alternative movement.

While the track lengths will surely limit “1937”’s radio chances, the songwriting and musicianship propel each song along, never leaving you with that “OK- skip to the next track” feeling that songs in the 10-minute range from some bands can. This is an album that really feels like an album; less about the “hit single” and more about giving their fans a piece of musical art and an enjoyable, well-planned and well-executed musical experience. An album like “1937” will still be great in 20 years – there is a hypnotizing timelessness to the songs and a song-to-song cohesiveness that makes this seem less like a self-produced local CD and more like a great classic album."
