Frontwoman Emily Haines' first words on Metric's latest LP go, "I'm just as fucked up as they say," and while that may be hyperbole, it's the group's quirky-yet-catchy approach to newer-wave that has set them apart from the social scene they came up with. Earlier this year, they released the well-received Synthetica, and despite containing their slickest production yet, their slightly off-kilter approach to musical hooks makes the sleekly synthetic sheen work. It's not so much "fucked up" as delightfully askew. With Half Moon Run.
