lights out

My new obsession: Metronomy. Specifically their new album, Nights Out, which I initially dismissed as inferior to their debut but am now beginning to think it's the other way around. It's like some glorious synthesis of Hot Chip and Datarock and all those other wacky yet awesome and infinitely danceable artists that I hold so dear to my heart (and feet). The album can be downloaded free from, and I've included a sampling here in the form of the track "My Heart Rate Rapid". Hope you enjoy.

Metronomy, "My Heart Rate Rapid"

Bonus: two of them are totally cute and British. Well they're all British. But one's kind of ugly.
