    More Music Like Metric?

    Possibly Pretty Girls Make Graves would appeal? they are more punk to my ears than Metric which I like. New Romance is their most popular album I think and is very good but I like Good Health most.

    What was your best album/cd find of the year?

    best discovery this year would be entire grime genre biggest single album for me within that is Treddin On Thin Ice by Wiley. massive beats are more detached and cold than a lot of american hip hop type stuff, and Wiley's lyrics are great; alternatively playful, introspective, bleak and...

    Acoustic Bands/Albums + Indie/Altern./Emo Recommendations

    try The Mountain Goats. All Hail West Texas is very good album, though lo fi recording (literally recorded on a boom box to cassette tape). Sunset Tree is another good album with higher fidelity.

    Concert sound preference. Indoors/Outdoors?

    indoors just about 100% of the time. usually smaller, more intimate ,more intensity, sound quality depends more on quality of venue than indoor/out I find not sure I've ever been to a truly amazing outdoor show, but tons of indoor ones for sure
