Morning Coffee

A few weeks ago I posted a video from Metric, and claimed that Grow Up and Blow Away was better than Fantasies. After a few marathon sessions with both, I've reversed myself. I'm not quite sure how I slept on Fantasies, but it's basically an end to end burner. I'm trying to avoid all comparisons to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

This joint is one my faves if only for the message. Takes awhile to realize what can't get you off. I'm 36 and feeling this.
