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.
Summer wedding season is upon us, which means flights to book, registries to empty and pretty cocktail dresses to purchase and wear. Whether you’re going Oceanside in Nantucket Harbour, yachting off of Key West, witnessing vows in a botanical garden or ballroom dancing in NYC, we have an ensemble worthy of the best-dressed guest nod — just try not to show up the bride.
Blow, designed by Lindsey Adelman, takes its inspiration from the shape of traditional French wine barrel candelabras where the wooden staves are inverted and mounted to the metal hoops. By exaggerating the scale and orientation of the staves, Blow becomes an asymmetrical cloud-like form with inwardly facing points of light.
