Biography

Seeing the world is an eye-opening experience—especially if you grew up in the tiny town of Draper, Utah—so it’s no wonder Meg & Dia’s new album, Here, Here and Here, paints a portrait of what life has been like for this hard-working band as they’ve toured for the past two and a half years in support of their 2006 debut album Something Real (which spawned the ...

Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP version. After touring for more than two years supporting their 2006 major label debut, Meg & Dia return with Here, Here And Here, a musical and emotional rollercoaster of an album that heralds the coming of age of the indie pop-rock sisters,bolstered by producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects).

Customer Reviews

So I checked out their other songs online and decided to buy the whole cd.
Gayle George
Although it is a slightly overwhelmed "music vs lyrics" song, it is still very catchy and very memorable.
KMG
Meg and Dia's second real release is much welcome after the break since their last album.

Long lasting Meg & Dia fans beware: this album is very different from their previous albums. If you loved their original, hollow, acoustic, detailed-vocals sound, you will be in for a surprise when inserting this disc into your player. From the opening track "Going Away" to the final "Here, Here and Here" this album keeps jamming and experimenting with new instrumental sounds and muted vocals. The songs, as a whole, are showcased- not the vocals/ instruments/ lyrics in a separate manner.

"Going Away" is catchy, with a slightly ska feel to it. The sound is bright; bolsterous even. The vocals are sweet, but do not carry the same ear catching loneliness that Meg & Dia once carried. In this track, I am tuned in to the violins, the drums, the feel of the music. I could easily find myself listening to this while driving down the highway, on a summer's day, the wind blowing through my hair- while I too go away.

"Hug Me" has wonderful lyrics. The lyrics, I feel, are a bit lost on the surrounding music. I didn't realize how fantastic the words were until I'd pulled out the cd jacket and read them. "I'm just a girl learning to act as planned. I was programmed to be Catholic but I ran." Although it is a slightly overwhelmed "music vs lyrics" song, it is still very catchy and very memorable. It is a very mainstream song. It has a bit of a 90s feel to it- ala "Letters to CLeo" (known for their input on the "Josie and the Pussycats" soundtrack) This might be a song that will launch these girls into the pop/ rock culture of today.

"What If" is another high energy song that latches onto your hips and makes you sway. No, "they don't make em like us anymore". This would be a great one to see in concert. It has a bit of a Japanese inspiration to it- ala "The Pillows".

Well, it took a while but we finally have Meg & Dia's sophomore release, Here, Here and Here. Feelings are sure to be varying amongst longtime fans, but at the end of the day I think it's safe to say that this CD caters to almost everyone.

First off, I applaud the fact that they didn't just make a Something Real pt. 2. I never like when a band does that. But, if there's anyone holding up the sell-out flag, I could honestly understand where they were coming from. This is, for the most part, a fairly accessible record full of catchy choruses and nice vocals. However! As was the case with Something Real, the lyrics are where Meg & Dia shine brightest.

A lot of the songs on Here... are sung so fast that you can't really soak up the little treats amongst each track so you kind of have to read the lyrics yourself. It is obvious they have had some questions about religion, someone not believing in them, and even falling out of love. So until you read the lyrics, you might not truly see the beauty that Here, Here and Here possesses.

I'll be blunt, Here... isn't as good as Something Real. The change in overall sound is pretty drastic and the songs sound almost too poppy sometimes. But when Meg & Dia DO capture the things that made us all love the first record so much, it is nothing short of amazing. I'm Going Away, Black Wedding, Bored of Your Love, One Sail, and Fighting For Nothing are the songs that will please us devotees. Hug Me, The Last Great Star In Hollywood, Kiss You Goodnight, and the title track are all sure to please everyone else (and for the most part the older fans as well).

But incubus1! What's the best song? you may be asking. Well dear reader, that honor goes to the gorgeous Fighting For Nothing.

I love this album. Yes, it sounds different, but were you expecting them to make the same things over? The girls are young and growing as both people and artists. They display their range on this one,with emo-alt-rock songs to pop-y ballads and even the country like twang on 'Agree to Disagree'. These songs on this album are about them, and how they feel, they said this one was not going to be just about books(although hug me is). The songs have a sleeker sound but the same sort of feel(especially in the lyrics). If you were a fan of the band, not just their sound, this is just another great effort from the Meg and Dia Band.

also check out dia's blog about the album on their myspace(myspace.com/megdia), it will change the whole experiance of the album.

As my title says, this album is different than "Something Real." It is good, but different. There are songs in here that you can rock to as hard as "Monster" or "Indiana", and some that will make you somber and a little sad. If you love the band, then you'll like this CD. However, if you're looking for more of what's in "Something Real", you might be a little disappointed. Look at "Here, Here and Here" in it's own unbiased light and you'll probably find yourself excited to hear the two lovely ladies and the rest of the band play some of their new songs live.

Much like their debut album, Here, Here and Here has literary references within the lyrics, most notably to Huxley's Brave New World (found in "Hug Me") and Charles Dickens ("Inside My Head"). However, the sophomoric album differs from the first in that it's less of an acoustic sound. With Something Real, the music was simple and more tight-knit, but on Here, the band has branched out and begins experimenting with sound, tempo and different instruments such as the banjo.

However, Meg and Dia have continued writing intricate lyrics that combine melodic phrasing with depth and meaning, all conveyed through Dia's unique voice that can go from husky and lonesome to affected and melodic. A common theme running through the entire album is this idea of finding one's own way in the world. On songs like "Going Away" and "The Last Great Star in Hollywood", the sisters sing of being true to themselves. With "Going Away", Dia sings of "learning to race [herself]" and even leaving her boyfriend behind just to feel "lonely, lost and unloved." "Inside My Head" offers a darker, more sinister side of getting out of a controlling environment by portraying an abusive relationship where the "boyfriend used [her] palm as an ashtray/and that was on his good days."
Other notable songs on the record include "Hug Me" which references Huxley's Brave New World--"Hug me `til you drug me"--and tells the story of both Lenina and John's relationship in the story of being controlled by society, as well as the sisters' decision to leave the Catholic church. "Black Wedding" contains darker, Gothic imagery and feels very Poe-ish in a way. It talks of doing things for the wrong reasons as pictured by a black wedding where they "got their vows off the internet", "you could hear the organ not...
