Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Indie band Broken Social Scene performed their new song “Halfway Home” with Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw and Stars’ Amy Millan and Evan Cranely. “Halfway Home” is the first track from their new album which is due out before the fall. This will be their first album since 2010, I don’t know about you guys but I am SO excited! Check out the performance below..
Thank you Emily, needed this. Now give me more!
from their upcoming full length studio album, due out later this year!
Hey everyone! So this year has been pretty awesome right?! I think so! Lot’s of great new music was discovered, that’s always a good thing :). I have had a blast and a half going post crazy this year and I hope through some of my posts, you have been able to find some new tunes that you maybe hadn’t heard before! That is always my goal, to share what I find with you guys in hopes you will love it all like I do :)! Thank you for all the subscribing this year, that has been really really cool and more than I could’ve hoped for! I mean I essentially started this blog so I wouldn’t go post crazy on FB and take over people’s newsfeed…turns out I am still doing that since I get all my IMHB posts pushed to my FB =p! Anyways I never thought I would get many follows but it makes me super happy to know I am not the only one trolling the internet for new music!
In 2013 I resolve to go to WAY more live shows and more importantly POST about them! I went to some really great shows this year: Lollapalooza, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, and Metric but I wasn’t so great at posting about them..boo to me! Sorry! It’s kind of hard to explain the feeling you get from a really amazing live show…for me I am in aftershock once the show has ended and then I can’t remember how I felt because I was in some sort of trance..lol is that weird? Hopefully I am not the only one who gets like that! Annnnnyways, I promise to be better at posting about the live shows I go to and just in general writing more in my posts…aside from the song shares.
With that said, I hope you all have had an awesome year in 2012 and I can’t wait to spend 2013 sharing more music with you!!
YAY! Metric uploaded their music video for “Breathing Underwater” today! Love this video especially because of all the Lollapalooza footage they used! I am in that crowd somewhere..crying my eyes out lol.
Jk jk! I’m right here! I feel pretty bad about not posting as much as I usually do these past couple of weeks, it’s been pretty busy around these parts! I do however want to take a moment and tell you guys all about the awesome time I had in Tampa last weekend!
As you probably know..unless you don’t pay attention, Metric is my favorite band..like ever! Last weekend my awesome friend Lorrie (popdculture) flew all the way from Indiana to see Metric with me! We, as die-hard Metric fans knew we couldn’t pass up the unbelievable opportunity to run around Tampa AND get to see our favorite band in a super small and intimate venue!
So we met up on a Friday, went to dinner and then stayed in talking and drinking yummy Moscato and Redbull! Saturday (concert day!) we got up early and went to International Plaza which is this HUGE mall with all the good stores like Louis Vuitton, Tori Burch, Tiffanys, etc. That place was amazing, definitely recommend checking it out! After that we randomly decided to go to Ikea which was SO hilariously fun! After Ikea we drove all the way to the airport to eat at Carrabas…because Carrabbas is our favorite and it’s worth it duh! :p.
Finally the most exciting part of the day, we parked our car and walked right into The Ritz Ybor (no line, THANK GOODNESS!) and waited behind these double doors for them to let all of us into the main room! There was actually a really great band playing while we waited, unfortunately I have NO clue what their name was…? So they opened the doors and I grabbed Lorrie’s hand and we RAN for the front!!! We JUST made it to the perfect spot leaving just a tiny bit of space between us and the stage! We waited for a while and asked everyone around us who was opening because it wasn’t on our tickets and we had NO idea…and neither did anyone else. A band came out, totally unfamiliar, made up of 3 guys from Canada. I didn’t know what to expect seeing as how I had never heard of them before but I did know that they had to be at least pretty good (opening for Metric and all). Not to sound all..dramatic but this band literally took my breath away, I kind of didn’t know what to do with myself. They had GREAT energy, their voices weren’t like any I’d ever heard, and my favorite part about them was the beat (always the first thing I notice with any song). Ohhh each one of their songs has such a great beat! My absolute favorite was “Call Me in the Afternoon” (check out “Full Circle” also!). They were SO great and are one of those bands who sound the same, if not better live which is impressive to say the least.
