Metronomy Summer 08 we have a few copies of the album signed by Joe Metronomy. non-signed formats include a bonus CD with the Night Owl demo and other unreleased material (while stocks last) Just in time for summer Banquet faves and New Slangers Metronomy are back with some new quirky electro-indie-pop. Recorded mostly by Metronomy brainbox Joe Mount it also features guest appearances from Beastie Boys' Mix Master Mike and Robyn! “I had those other albums – and how I wanted to record in bigger studios – out of my system. I wanted to make another record with the naivety of ‘Nights Out’: ten tracks, straight up, upbeat. Write another banger, then another, and don’t really think about it.” Because CD | LP
Metronomy Love Letters Expected 10th March New album from New Slangers Metronomy the brainchild of Devon-born Joe Mount. Analogue and synth pop like Metronomy do so well!In its execution, Love Letters tries to do fresh things in an old-fashioned way. It takes richer methods of recording and injects them with the shock of the new – of tight electronics, and experiments in sound. It does so not to be retro, but to embrace the quality standards of the past. It also aims to be up there with the greats, reaching for those old stars. These songs go places Metronomy never have before, and they do so spectacularly. All on a record where old friends take our hands, and lead us somewhere new. Because CD | LP

Metronomy The English Riviera The third album from a long standing fave at Banquet; Metronomy. The third chapter in their evolution sees a quite remarkable sound, a beautiful sound, but still retains all the quirky jovial electronic fun which first caught our attention. This will win the Mercury. The follow up to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Nights Out’, ‘The English Riviera’ is a sonic progression of epic proportions and affirms Metronomy front man and producer, Joseph Mount, as a rare British talent. Since ‘Nights Out’, the band have swollen to a four piece with new members Anna Prior on drums, Gbenga Adelekan on bass, original member Oscar Cash on keys/sax, and Joe himself on vocals, keys and guitar. This expansion of personnel is reflective of a new record that is mapped by vast soundscapes, incredible depth and warmth, and big pop hooks Part love letter to the area of Devon coast Mount grew up in and part concept album about his own semi-fictionalised vision of ‘The English Riviera’, the tone for the album is set by the opening sounds of seagulls, distant waves and a Music Hall string quartet. However, any notion of whimsy is swiftly dispelled, as the seismic bass line of ‘We Broke Free’ shudders and ushers in waves of layered guitars and synths. Having produced and remixed everyone from Roots Manuva to Kate Nash and the forthcoming album from Nicola Roberts, this is the first Metronomy album that Mount has taken out of his bedroom and recorded in a proper studio. The results are telling. Characterised throughout with a sense of warmth and richness, ‘The English Riviera’ is in parts reminiscent of seminal 1970s West Coast studio albums from the likes of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, but due to Mount’s studio wizardry, the record sounds vibrant and entirely of its time. Few other albums released this year will so successfully transcend such a plethora of influences and ideas and form such a coherent body of work. www.metronomy.co.uk/ Because CD | LP
Metronomy Nights Out The second full length from Metronomy finally arrives! We love Metronomy and have had them play at our club New Slang a couple of times before. The singles that we've heard so far from this record have been amazing and we can't wait to hear the rest of the album! It's hard to pigeon hole Metronomy because they don't really sound like any other band I can think of right now, but all you need to know is that their indie-tinged electro is some of the best stuff we've heard over the last couple of years. Metronomy playing our club night New Slang! Because Music CD
