In an interview with SPIN Magazine, frontwoman Emily Haines revealed that Metric would be releasing an LP slated for Spring 2012. The last time I truly listened to Metric was probably back in 2009 for at least several months consistently when their album Fantasies came out. I actually heard one of their singles the other day in this video of Victoria Justice and Avan Jogia dancing and singing along to it and I had that “wait – where have I heard this before?” moment. I spent the next four minutes trying to listen closely to the broken lyrics in the song and then googling it to figure out the source and then was amused when I found out that it was one of my favorite bands! How do you forget things like that?
Today when I read this interview with Haines, I was reminded of my friend Veronica because she once told me that she was going to make a list of 100 of her favorite albums. However, an album would only count if she liked every single song on it. If she liked an entire album except for one song, it would not make the cut. So I remembered today that I wanted to do a similar list like that after reading this interview because Metric’s Fantasies really was one of those albums for me.
Gosh Veronica must have told me that two years ago I think.
