Biography

Down a quiet driveway in East London is an old-fashioned studio. It's the home of analogue sound, of warm, dusty machines, where the ambitions of independent-minded artists get turned into classic recordings.

In short, it's where that magic happens.

Arguably a go to studio for rock’n’roll musicians, there is one genre that Toe Rag Studios are certainly not known ... Read more in Amazon's Metronomy Store

Product Description

BBC Review

To hoist Metronomy from the obscure laptop larks of bedroom-wrought debut Pip Paine (Pay the £5,000 You Owe) to the full-blooded fun machine of its present live incarnation, founder Joseph Mount had to do three things. One: recruit some bandmates to breathe life and energy into his songs. Two: run out to the Pound Store and snapped up some big, fun flashing lights that he, Oscar Cash and Gabriel Stebbing could wear around their necks at gigs. And three, write some pop music.

Go to a Metronomy gig and you get all that. Investigate second album Nights Out and you’ll find a transitional but very cohesive set, one that bridges the gap between dazzling pop and scuffling bedroom electronics with surprising grace. It’s a record that builds cautiously, from the insect hummings of Nights Out Intro, up up up through the wonky electro tickler The End of You Too, edging into the deadpan, nearly-sing-along of Radio Ladio and then WHAM: two of the best pop songs of the year, if not the decade.

The record’s most endearingly silly moment, My Heart Rate Rapid creeps up on a taut carpet of pings, cocks its head, then bursts into a helium delirium of incomprehensible falsetto ebullience, fizzing into the ether like drunken fireworks. A few octaves are dropped for the equally wonderful Heartbreaker, a minimal slink based around a curiously compelling sample of a creaky door and Mount’s half spoken, “I heard she broke your heart again / Well that girl’s a heartbreaker”. It’s tiny, but steely and compact, distilling the sentiment of nigh-on all pop music into two lines and refusing to sound smug about it.

Having scaled such heights, Nights Out immediately begins to descend: the likes of Side 2, On the Motorway and Back on the Motorway are gently intricate semi-instrumentals that glide forward, small but hypnotic, redolent of the after-dark drive depicted on the album’s cover. Indeed, taken as a whole the record is a surprisingly subdued affair.

With the band’s giddy live reputation growing by the gig, Nights Out is way more introverted than you’d have perhaps expected, but it hangs together nicely, and when it soars, it reaches the stars. --Andrzej Lukowski

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Alternative Album of 2008 16 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
'Nights Out' is an utter masterpiece through and through. Don't listen to it expecting to pick up the tracks straight away, for parts of it, it's a grower. If you haven't tried any electronica before then may I suggest previewing it first via Spotify or iTunes. As an entire album, all of the tracks fit perfectly. Sure, they're other albums from 2008 which make the Top 10 list, but this works effortlessly. For fans of Late of the Pier, Crystal Castles, MGMT et al.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the English Riviera 10 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
This album is even better than the brilliant 'English Riviera' album. Its less produced but very quirky and experimental and probably needs to few plays to be fully appreciated, but its very original and addictive once you get it. 'My Heart Rate Rapid' is simply awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly good show old chaps. 23 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
An incredible second album and always a difficult one to produce, particularly if you are trying to surpass an acclaimed debut, so considering the first Metronomy album was so fantastic - although a little rough round the edges - these guys have really proved themselves as talented musicians. 'Nights Out' is not the most innovative album and I do draw comparisons to Hot Chip; being within the a similar genre and with the comedic undertones, but this does give the music a warm jovial feel. Combining this warmth with the funky melodies it creates a truly wholesome sound, what more could you want? Great stuff and can't wait to hear more from this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome and edgy 1 Jan 2010
Format:Vinyl
great album, truly different to a lot of stuff out there, heart rate rapid and thing for you have had packed dancefloors bouncing when I've played them in cool clubs in london's east end.

If you prefer to listen to a 60year old wearing tight pants and singing an album of other peoples songs then this is not for you and perhaps you need to get out more.
