Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

Metric's debut album, Old World Underground, Where Are You?, trod a fine line between the endearing and the slightly embarrassing. Despite Emily Haines' lovely cracked purr, the clunky lyrics ("subtract my age from the mileage on my speeding heart") don't particularly help the clunky indie rock they're combined with. But, when they nail it, they really nail it. The superb Dead Disco attacks like a synthed-up Yeah Yeah Yeahs. You might not normally associate part-time members of Broken Social Scene with dancefloor-friendly electro-punk but it works exceptionally well.
