Youth without youth

Drum machine, acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals

I love Metric. Still, I have mixed feelings about their latest release, Synthetica. Which I have bought, of course. Maybe it's because I feel like its sounds have been over-plated with post-production (do I really know what I'm writing?) and the drum machines beats go so.. plastic? (when they have a kick ass live drummer, Joules Scott-Key, - I can't understand why they didn't use him for the recordings). And there is not that full of instant OHDEARILOVETHISSONGs, like in their former records (which I own, of course). A good record, not that illuminated, like they - we know - can do.

Anyway, this spartan, live performance is simply sexy and catchy (and I'm not referring only about Emily), You can't say any different.
I sincerely hope to see them again performing live, because last time they were amazing and I felt well.

"[..] Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric invited us into a posh suite at NYC's Bowery Hotel. There, the duo stripped away the electric throb of their new single, "Youth Without Youth," down to two-part harmonies, acoustic guitar and harmonica (!). All that remained from the original was a spare, digital beat, saddled up through Shaw's iPhone."

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
