I’m really into Metric’s latest album, Fantasies. Pitchfork dislikes it (I’m NOT linking there, because fuck ’em), but I actually find that reassuring. One fun way to calibrate your taste with that of the hipsterati (see what I did there??) is to think of an album you really, really love, and then go see what they think of it. Sometimes fun, frequently irritating.
I listened to “Sick Muse” last night in my friend’s car and it’s been in my head ever since.
