Hooray for Obama! I sort
of hate to just automatically deem the guy as the cure-all President, but
I'd be a liar if didn't say that I'm confident about something
positive happening over the next four years. Can't we just go on and
let him start immediately? At any rate, today I have word on Metric.
In my opinion they've been out of the spotlight for far too long, so I'm
really thrilled to see some activity. First up will be a December tour
around Canada with Tokyo Police Club, the Dears and Sebastian Granger And
The Mountains, and then sometime next year there will finally be a brand new
record that will surely be fantastic. No word on exact details yet,
but the first track (it's also the title of the tour) that's been bouncing
around awaits you below. Enjoy.
- Help, I'm Alive:
Good news! This sounds exactly like what many of you
are probably already hearing in your head. Now, I
realize that particular bit of news may not be what you're
looking for to help add a hint of intrigue to your day, but
let's be honest - Metric continuing to make smart indie rock
is a very good thing. I just hope that whatever they
put out in 2009 arrives as early in the year as possible
since there's no way I'll be able to wait very long to get
more of this.
how a new song from a favorite group can so easily remind
you how much you like them. Here's Combat Baby,
which is actually the first tune that I ever heard from
Emily Haines and Co.
