Canada’s Metric will soon be releasing their fifth studio album, Synthetica, June 12th, 2012 on Mom + Pop Records. The album’s first single, “Youth Without Youth,” is a reaction to how singer Emily Haines perceives the world of today as “the decay of the social state, through the eyes of a deprived youth.”

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
