Metric Announce New Album

Canadian new wave rockers The Metric returns with their fourth studio album Fantasies, due to release on April 14 via Last Gang Records.

Their past materials have garnered attention from us - their new wave instance shook our eardrums with their voluptuous grooves, harmonious booms. It sounds ironically desperate, but it's the truth. At least it got us off our desks and started mingling around with a couple of pints.

So if you ask, we're actually looking forward to this new album of theirs. Their first single, Help I'm Alive was released a while ago. An acoustic version of the song is currently available for download on their official page.

Emily Haines and James Shaw are also part of the Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene.

Y-Love & DeScribe Presents 'The Change EP'

Last year, Y-Love released his debut album This is Babylon and is still garnering praises for his intriguing effort to blend hip hop, reggae and r&b together which made people impressed, at least we did and still floating with his debut.

However, he ain't staying in snooze mode delivering much more greater tunes for the people out there. Therefore, he teamed up with Crown Heights collaborator DeScribe to give in some fresh tunes for 2009. Both have generated good vibes, their new single Change mixes Y-Love's "militant mysticism with the plaintive urgencry of DeScribe's singing".

Change is one of the four tracks to be included in the The Change EP, to be released on April 28 through Modular Moods.
