On their recent iTunes session, Metric recorded a cover of Buffalo Springfield's ' Expecting To Fly '. Although Emily Haines ' vocal is pretty much unmistakable the sound of this track is a real diversion from the norm for Metric. Much more delicate and (for lack of a better word) pretty than much of their other stuff. I still prefer the 'Combat Baby' [...]

Metric kicked off the year with an 8-track acoustic/electric session that is only available on iTunes. " When we were in LA playing the Jimmy Kimmel show in December, we spent a day at East West Studios recording off the cuff and live off the floor. We captured for the first time on tape (not a camera phone) the extended versions of a few of our live concert classics as well as a couple acoustic numbers accompanied by a string quartet led by Todor Kobakov.

Después de la presentación de su iTunes Session la semana pasada, el cuarteto de Toronto estrena el video de Expecting to Fly , su versión a pura cuerda del tema perteneciente a la recién reunida banda Buffalo Springfield . Una canción tan hermosa como la escrita por Neil Young en 1967 merecía un hermoso vídeo y así lo pensó el director y amigo de los Metric [...]

Check out the new video and get Metric iTunes Session here .
One band who seem to have been touring relentlessly over the past couple of years is Metric.

Rather than put out a fully produced document of Metric live in 2009-2010 the band have created an iTunes session, which seems to be quite a popular mode of releasing music these days. I've always been sceptical about the value of these sessions so haven't checked [...]
