MP3 of the Day (and more!) #292: Metronomy

 
By on Tuesday, 1st February 2011 at 10:00 am
 

Metronomy‘s single released on Monday, ‘She Wants’, is an intriguing taster to their highly anticipated next album ‘The English Riviera’. Some of the words sound robotic, but in this case, it’s strangely intoxicating. And the band is offering up the single as a free download in exchange for your email address. Really, you need to hear this track. And visually, the promo video is surreal and brilliant, down to “a glass of water by her side”. Check out both below.

Shockwaves NME Awards Shows / London, Manchester and Glasgow / January and February 2009

 
By on Tuesday, 2nd December 2008 at 4:20 pm
 

The sensational Shockwaves NME Awards shows have been announced for next January and February to start off a 2009 in great style. The likes of Franz Ferdinand, The Wombats and Simian Mobile Disco are among this year’s great gigs, with more to be announced shortly.

Franz Ferdinand‘s frontman Alex Kapranos said of their opening night honour: “We’re going to play the gig to celebrate ‘Ulysess’ coming out and Heaven is the best place to go and celebrate. The new songs are the type that should be heard in clubs so we liked the idea of playing a show in one. We want people close to us who are dancing and sweating, that’s the vibe that we want. We definitely don’t want polite theatre shows for this record- we want some excitement!”

Tickets are available exclusively at NME from 9am on Wednesday, 26th November and then go on general sale on Monday 1st December.
