Album on Rotation Today—Old World Underground, Where Are You Now by Metric

on Spotify


One of the most stunning successes on Old World Underground, Succexy” takes issue with the political agenda of the U.S. government from a more creative stance than the indie world’s typical anti-Bush rhetoric and generalizations. Instead of placing the blame purely on the government, Haines claims, All we do is talk, sit, switch screens/ As the homeland plans enemies.” Slipping between power chords and her own serpentine synth lines, Haines juxtaposes sex and war without sounding lost in her own thoughts.

Ah, simpler times.
