Metric isn't new, to me or to many in the know around the music scenes (or even outside the music scene thanks to spots on the Scott Pilgrim and Eclipse soundtracks), but I didn't get into them until their recent album, Fantasies, came out, and along with it, acoustic covers of "Help, I'm Alive" and "Front Row." Now, though, the entire Fantasies album is on rotation, along with the acoustic covers, on my Grooveshark account. Metric is cool. And listenably catchy in a way that's not catchy for catchy's sake. They've got good lyrics and music.
