Metric Returns

New Metric video, finally: Gimme Sympathy. I used to adore this band, but this is kinda meh. But the video might look sorta familiar for anyone who has seen Olivier Assayas' Clean. The opening scene is at a Metric show and it segues into a cameo for Emily Haines -- watch it here. Their new album, Fantasies, drops in a few weeks.


Other than both being "live" performance clips, I guess I am failing to see the similarities between this video and the opening scene of "Clean." Did you watch the whole video? Did you notice how they all change outfits and play different instruments? Methinks you need to get past the first chorus, holmes.

Also, the record is amazing. If you haven't heard it yet, drop me a line -- I know people who know people.

the new record is easily their best to date... after the very very disappointing last album.
