Re: Metric

Saw them for a third time last night opening for the Pumpkins. God damn did Emily look hot. A bikini top under a hoodie. Can't believe she is mid-40s.

I always find it weird seeing mid-tier headlining bands open for others. There was barely anybody there.

Re: Metric

Supposedly they started shipping out the Dreams So Real stuff from PledgeMusic on July 23rd.

I'm seeing pictures and other notes from people on PledgeMusic, Twitter, etc. who've gotten their Blu-rays and all, but alas, nothing's shown up here yet.

I saw Metric open up for Imagine Dragons in Boise a couple of years ago and Halsey opened up first. Hardly anyone was there for Halsey and it filled up a bit for Metric, but now Halsey's huge as are Imagine Dragons, but Metric is still "indie." I like Metric more than both the others. I'd only gone to show cuz the chick I was dating was a big ID fan. I became a Halsey fan after that, though. I love Metric more, though.

Re: Metric

Oh, hey, look what finally showed up!



Not only is there no Atmos, but it's Dolby Digital 5.1 on Blu-ray rather than something lossless.

Edit! Now that I've done a full scan of the disc, yup. DVD quality audio on Blu-ray. You have your choice of Dolby Digital 5.1 (448kbps) or stereo (192kbps). That's a drag.

Re: Metric

Now that is a pisser. I never got the 4K files downloaded correctly. I'm curious to know if that sound will be any better. But if the blu is standard 5.1, I doubt they fully loaded the 4K version.

Re: Metric

Saw them open for the Pumpkins last night - Always a great show from Metric, good energy and did mostly new songs, which was a bold choice (I think 5/8 tracks played were from the new record or something close to that. I loved it but a lot of people seemed to be bored). That being said, they all sounded great, new album going to be really good.

Yep, I never get tired of looking at Emily Haines, and hearing her sing.

Re: Metric

That new song Risk is like the companion piece to Gimmie Sympathy. They actually shot it using those same "single take" camera techniques.

Re: Metric

^ she sounds like she's trying to mask her Canadian accent a bit, but I can hear it come out in a few words/sentences.

That John Hopkins album sounds cool.

I had no idea about that Ben / Rod Stewart and Do ya think I'm sexy bit. Cool shout out to The Coup, though!

Re: Metric

Posting this for no other reason than to say that I love Emily and I love Craig Ferguson. This is a great performance:

Re: Metric

Saw Metric last Thursday night at the Phoenix in Toronto. They were awesome . Seeing them in such a small intimate setting was a real treat.
