THU OCT 16 METRONOMY @ TREES DOORS: 7:00 PM / SHOW: 9:00PM / ALL-AGES ADVANCE: $17 / DAY OF: $20 On Sale: Friday, June 27th at 10 am CDT 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 for, yet. One man plans to change that. It’s ambitious, adventurous modern pop’s turn. Over the past six months, a man with curly hair has been regularly checking into Toe Rag studios in order to finish his anticipated fourth album. He has brought with him with a passion for The Zombies, an affection for Love, and a ridiculous enthusiasm for Sly and the Family Stone. He is already known for writing great songs, crafting his lyrics with care, and pushing pop melodies into fabulous shapes. Synthesisers and computers have been his primary tools in the past; at Toe Rag, he felt he could he push them to more heavenly places. Joseph Mount, from Totnes in Devon, is the lead singer and architect of Metronomy. His new album, Love Letters, has a title that speaks volumes about sensations and modes of communication, about things that have always been there, and will always be here. It’s no coincidence either. This is a record that wants to be timeless. 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.
