Metric is definitely one of our favorite bands and even though we were less than impressed with their Letterman performance we thought everyone should check it out if they missed it. 'Help I'm Alive' is still a great track and we are thinking that Emily Haines was so subdued because she was nervous. The idea of a video leading up to the performance was a good idea though. Check it out...
Just in case you missed it, White Rabbits were on Letterman last night. Here's the proof.
Although it's been on sale via iTunes for $6.99 since last week, White Rabbits' new album It's Frightening officially drops today. Catch them on tour this Summer, and remember they'll be in Austin performing on the inside stage at Emo's on June 14th with The Subjects and the always amazing locals, The Boxing Lesson. Tickets for that show are only $10, get them here.
In addition to directing the official video for White Rabbits' "Percussion Gun", Andrew Droz Palermo has some great pictures from the band during the making of the video, in the studio, rehearsing, and also on the road via his website. He has plans on making a White Rabbits documentary in the future as well.
Animal Collective took to the Letterman stage last night to perform "Summertime Clothes". Here's the performance complete with dancers wearing sheets tearing it up behind them.
