I only recently got into Metronomy, thanks to a friend who always puts on Nights Out before we head out into the night. Now Nights Out is easily one of my favourite releases of 2008. My favourite song changes every week, which to me is the sign of a good album. At the moment it's A Thing For Me. Metronomy's videos are always great too, in my mind they're on par with those by Hot Chip, Bjork and The Presets.

It's interesting that Metronomy are playing with the Teenagers, who in my mind released one of the worst albums of 2008 (though not quite as bad as the one by the Ting Tings), though it will be fun to sing along to Homecoming. And hey, they're French so they can pretty much get away with anything really.
