Yea, it sounds just like BSS and Kevin Drew's solo album too. Not complaining or anything , i love that sound. thanks for letting me know about it i gotta go do some downloading now.

Also, have you heard the Most Serene Republic? Very similar to BSS, theyre from Canada too so they have that uniquely Canadian indie sound and i think theyre even on the same label, but definitely check out both the albums Phages and Population.

BSS has come to annoy me. I like a lot of thier songs, to be sure, but I have the same issue with them as I do with Arcade Fire. Their songs tend to sound the same after a while. It's the same thing over and over.

A couple of bands I've been listening to lately are The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Jay Reatard. The Pains play really poppy shoegazer rock and Jay Reatard plays spazzy pop-punk (with acoustic guitars layered over crunchy hooks and keyboards) that is insanely catchy. I recommend them both. You should be able to find them on MySpace.

I was disappointed by it, although tracks 2 and 3 are real standouts.

I got a chance to listen to an advance copy of the new Metric record. I'm pretty sure it's leaked online, as well.

Metric fans should be EXTREMELY pleased with this album. It's a little less electro happy, and more guitar driven. But it picks right back up where Live It Out left off.

"Help, I'm Alive" , "Gold Guns Girls", and "Gimme Sympathy" are amazing.

I had never heard of either of these bands prior to seeing them open a show in '07, but they've been in heavy rotation on my end since then:

Fair To Midland - embedding was disabled, so here's a link to one of their songs. The studio stuff isn't so easy to find on the Tube, but if you're interested in looking them up elsewhere, "Walls of Jericho" is another good song by them.

REALLY? I can't believe anyone actually likes that album... one time through and the album is completely disappointing. Metric is clearly making a bid for fame, and going about it in the most boring way possible. Fantasies is tired and forgettable. Really bad.

The only song I can deal with is "Stadium Love", and even that song is CLEARLY just them wishing they were huge so they can have a whole stadium ranting along with them

I'm all for bands getting more popular and I do believe Metric deserves this, but their album is such a pathetically obvious attempt to get more mainstream that it makes me cringe.

I saw them in concert a few months ago and I was already aware that they were wishing to be bigger, because they performed a lot of the new songs, and it was like they lost their soul

Not cool, Haines.

I actually don't mind Metric's new(ish) sound. What I've heard off the album thus far I like.

Anyone picked up Neko Case's new album? She's becoming one of my absolute favourite singers.

Fantasies review from All Music:

http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg...0:a9fixzq0ldhe

Quote:
Metric's third full-length album, Fantasies, is a glossy, slick, and so-clean-you-could-eat-off-it slice of modern rock that may scare off some of the band's early fans due to the unrepentant commercial nature of the album.

Anyone who isn't repelled by the band's professionalism and ambition to sound perfect will find it to be quite good. You can't begrudge them taking a shot at the big time, especially when the result is as good as this. And it's not like they are doing anything radically different here; it just sounds freshly painted and shorn of any defects.

In other words, it sounds just like an album by one of the bands that inspire them, finely tuned machines like the Cars, Garbage, Blondie, and Missing Persons. Or conversely, they sound sort of how you'd imagine the ideal Idol contestant's album would sound -- huge with an excess of glittering and hooks.

Indeed, most of the songs on Fantasies wouldn't sound out of place on a Kelly Clarkson record; they are finely crafted, totally focused, and powerful pop songs that blend '80s new wave, '90s alt-rock, and timeless pop songcraft into compact pop nuggets.

If "Sick Muse" were given a push on radio, it could easily be a big smash for the band. The hand-waving chorus, the pulverizing drumming, and the smooth-as-glass production are perfect for the airwaves.

Quite a few others sound like they too should be blasting out of car radios on summer streets; the laser beam-tight "Gold Guns Girls," the shimmering "Front Row," and the propulsive "Gimme Sympathy" all fit this bill perfectly.

The few ballads that dot the album like frozen teardrops betray none of the warm introspection that Emily Haines brought to her solo albums; her singer/songwriter demons sound like they've been exorcised once and for all here. Instead, they sound big enough to reach the back row of a stadium, as does the whole album. That Metric title a song "Stadium Love" gives you a clue to the ambition of the band.

There's nothing small or careful about Fantasies -- it's a full-on bid for pop glory and it's a smashing success.

The mentions of The Pixies and Pavement drew me to this thread.

Anyone else big into The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles, and so on? Been big into The Futureheads, Maximo Park, and The Last Shadow Puppets lately.

CBC radio 3? I don't think I've ever heard of that. I mostly float on Radio 2 and the modern rock stations cross the nation.
Thanks!
