Metric‘s SoundCloud page is awesome! One can listen to their entire discography, including their first album that was only released in 2007, Grow Up and Blow Away (perhaps minus b-sides). They are the only band I know of that has all their recorded output free to be listened to online (especially of commercially successful acts). I do not have their new album yet, but I hope to catch them live soon, and purchase the CD at the show.
Click on ‘Sets’, and Emily Haines’s solo stuff (Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton). Bang Lime, the side-project of Joules Scott-Key and Josh Winstead of Metric can also be found.
