Metric – Synthetica (MMI / Crystal Math Music)

With their fifth album, Canadian electro kings (and queen) Metric show why they have earned legions of fans world-wide.  Boasting an infectious mix of electronica, new wave, indie-rock and more, the intensely melodic Synthetica is every bit as potent as the group’s last record, Fantasies. When the first words sung by vocalist Emily Haines are “I’m just as fucked up as they say”, one might wonder where the album is headed however as the record progresses and the melodies fill your ears, you feel instantly gratified that the band has let you into their world.
