METZ - SUB POP
FILTER Grade: 81%
By Bailey Pennick on October 16, 2012
For years, it seems that any music coming from Canada featuring guitars and a beat has been pushed under the lazy category of indie rock (Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Metric), but METZ—Toronto’s latest export—is here to shatter those perceptions about our friends to the north. On its self-titled debut, the post-punk trio remarkably bottles the sound of a live show; immediately shredding from the top of “Headache” ’til the very end. Brace yourself or get the hell out of the way.
