Metric – Breathing Underwater

The song stuck in my head this week is Metric’s “Breathing Underwater” from their album Synthetica, which has a few other good singles like “Youth without Youth.” I also like their first album, Fantasies, which has “Help I’m Alive” and “Gold Guns Girls.” I think I might see if they’re on vinyl.

Another band I’m getting back into are the Subhumans from Canada, who’ll get their own post soon. They have quite a history, and for my money, they wrote the catchiest punk songs. Like the Ramones with the politics of the Dead Kennedys. I’ll post about them next week. I’m going to try to catch up on the foodie and literary part of my vacation. We visited the homes of Edward Gorey, Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Lucy Maud, and ate the heart out of Maine and Prince Edward Island.
