2009 release. Founded by frontwoman Emily Haines (beloved by critics for her work as part of Broken Social Scene) and guitarist Jimmy Shaw, the group self-financed the recording of Fantasies and set up their own global label operation. Formed in Toronto but, at various times, based in Montreal, London, New York and L.A., Metric boasts the sort of history that requires one of those connect-the-dots redlined maps you see in an Indiana Jones movie - and the story of Fantasies is no different. Produced by Gavin Brown (The Tea Party, Billy Talent), co-produced by Metric guitarist Jimmy Shaw, and mixed by Grammy award winning collaborator John O'Mahony (Coldplay, The Strokes). 10 tracks.
