Metric unplugged at the Bowery Hotel

Mere hours after unveiling tunes off their just-released fifth album, Synthetica, for a horde of adoring fans inside the cozy Music Hall of Williamsburg, Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric invited us into a posh suite at NYC’s Bowery Hotel to tape a performance for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube, which posts awesome sessions like this one every week (see them all here).

At the hotel, 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.

This is Christmas!

It’s a little premature… but with Thanksgiving on the horizon we’re starting to get excited about the holidays. Conveniently, our lovely friends Emmy the Great and Tim Wheeler just announced their album, This Is Christmas.  Featuring all original songs (except for one Phil Spector cover), we can’t get enough of ‘(Don’t Call Me) Mrs. Christmas’ and ‘Home For The Holidays’. You can pre-order the album on iTunes – the expected release date is November 21st.
