QC MIXTAPE VOL. 60 (OCT 17 – NOV 6)

by bmac Pop Out Player “Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behaviour. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: WINTER FLOWER

by charles poladian It was a time for ghosts, ghouls, CMJ, and sunlight. October has come and left us bitter. That night where I gained an hour was a precious gift that loving October could only bring. Unfortunately November shakes sleep from her gentle head from a year of slumber and her gift is darkness [...]

QC REVIEW: METRIC @ MASSEY HALL

by cheryl santa maria Emily Haines is, in every sense of the word, a star. Her incredible voice, combined with her fashion sensibilities and energetic stage presence, have been known to send audiences into a frenzy and last night’s sold-out performance at Toronto’s Massey Hall was no exception. A member of the indie rock scene [...]

A CONCERT A DAY FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH

by cheryl santa maria Who needs CMJ? Check out all of the other great shows that are going on in the month of October: ► October 20 / 21: If you can teleport to Toronto, get yourself to Massey Hall tonight because Metric is coming to town and, as an added bonus, they’re going to [...]

METRIC @ TERMINAL 5

by ledoux & pelly (pictures by marc evan) An effervescent Emily Haines neutralized the architecturally inefficient Terminal 5 last night. Touring for their album Fantasies, Metric kicked off their short but satisfying set with “Twilight Galaxy” and would settle in as the concert wore on. The band’s connections to NYC were evident in their performance [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 45 (MAY 10 – 16)

by zerone Pop Out Player I was a free and lazy bird this weekend but was keen to jump at opportunity. Sometimes it’s about putting yourself in a comfortable position to act when called upon. We’ll sidestep the abyss of philosophical thought to heed the words of T.S. Elliot with an excerpt from his poem [...]

PERFECT PROBLEM: REGINA VS METRIC ON 6/17

alex p. This week I realized the horrible coincidence of Regina Spektor and Metric playing on the very same evening in Manhattan. It’s yet to be confirmed if Regina will play any added NYC dates which has led me into one of the world’s greatest quandaries: Regina Spektor or Emily Haines. I figure the only [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 42 (APR 19 – 25)

by bmac Pop Out Player I think winter finally gave up. Not only did we get a duo of sunny 90 degree days this weekend, but it looks like it’s going to stay nice and warm for the foreseeable future. Time to bust out the shades, shed the layers and make some festival plans for [...]

QC ALBUM REVIEW: FANTASIES

by jon ledoux “Is it ever gonna be enough?” Emily Haines asks halfway through Fantasies, Metric’s new album dropped today via the band’s self distribtuion operation and Last Gang Records in Canada. The answer resoundingly is yes. Metric’s prominence on the outskirts of the music scene this decade has been building around their reputation as [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 37 (MAR 15 – 21)

by bmac Thanks in large part to a ridiculous Hype Filter, this week’s mixtape is like getting a present for no reason or celebrating a fake birthday (which can be extremely fun by the way) – Anyhow, here’s your literary piece of mimsy from the great Henry Kuttner before we drape you with mixtape goodness: [...]
