Metronomy has been one of my favorite new artists this year. Their album Nights Out is a slow-grower. The first couple tracks, instrumentals, wear you out a bit when you reach “Radio Ladio” it’s love.
But my favorite track has been “Heartbreaker,” which has been remixed dozens and dozens of times. On the original, I love the squealchy, creaky keyboards and percussion. The sounds on it are just great. I really am enjoying this remix of the song also, because it preserves much of what I love of the original but upgrading it.
