Metric is basically a rock and roll band with plenty of rock and roll cred (seeing them with Lou Reed drove that home for me.) They are one of my favorite bands and Emily Haines is one of my favorite performers. She is just a badass rock and roll icon.
In this playlist:
Sick Muse – Classic Metric song – straight up
Cascades – From their newest album where they have added more electronic instruments and this song (live version on YouTube playlist) shows how the guitars and electronics fit together.
Gold Guns Girls – Great dong, fun video you should watch to the end
Synthetica – From their previous album – Emily!
