THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Metz – ‘Cellophane’

One of the loudest, hardest bands we’ve regularly played on THE BIG BEAT, METZ (we both love ALL-CAPS) will be back with a new album on September 22 and a gig at Thalia Hall a few days later on the 25th. Feel the Canadians’ power on the lead single and then dig into the rest of this week’s program. As is the case each and every week, there are lots of records that you’ll love if you actually spend a little time with ’em, so get to it, kid!
