Metric
For today, I am putting up "Too Little, Too Late" by Metric, a song that I have been dying for you to hear for a while, but refrained because I already sent out "Police and the Private" several months ago and mostly I'm trying not to repeat bands. I have to make an exception here, because it is just too great a song, and my brain might burst from trying to contain it. This is as perfect as they come, great great songwriting--pretty and lyrical, yet distinctly threatening. Metric is from Canada and Brooklyn and partly form part of the Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene. Emily Haines did the vocals on BSS's amazing "Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl" that was an SOD a while back.
