Taking time in the name of taking time
The Metric Mile
Since finally, happily, receiving my copy of The Metric Mile's 'In Praise of Ski Jumpers' 7", I don't think it has really left my turntable – in short, I'm definitely in love. I'm hearing bits and pieces of all my favorite bands – The Wake, OMD, The Field Mice, etc – all rolled into one and it's just perfect! I first fell in love with A-side "In Praise of Ski Jumpers", which prompted me to order the single in the first place, but it's the B-side, "Codebreaking", that now has me in a fixed grin. This song could have fit right between "Gruesome Castle" and "Pale Spectre" on The Wake's 1987 'Something That No One Else Could Bring' EP – which, I assure you, means a lot, because I love the crap out of that record. Now I also love the crap out of The Metric Mile. You going to NEED to get this single! I'm not going to post any songs, but you can them at the link below, or of course on MySpace.
