“Come on baby, play me something…”

November 25, 2009

a little while back, i was pretty anti-chick musicians. not for any particular reason other than i hadn’t found any that really struck me. so, i suppose it wasn’t so much an adamant stance as much as it was a passive penchant towards men who made music.

as i am about to post something about one of my favorite albums of this year, i realize that i’m listening to lots and lots of broads as of late.

and thus, ladies and gentlemen, i introduce you to Ms. Emily Haines, front woman of the fabulous band Metric, and her solo project: Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton. (i prefer Metric to the latter, but that’s neither here nor there).

this woman rules in so many ways.

as an added bonus, here is the NPR recording of the show i went to in june at the 930 Club in Washington, DC.
