SOTD 1.28.10

Don't expect the indie seductress Emily Haines you know and love from Metric on today's SOTD. Written after the death of her father, Knives Don't Have Your Back is a piano-driven album that puts Haines' hauntingly beautiful voice at the forefront for ballads of loss and despair. Although she has fortunately been strong enough to move pass this trying period of her life in 2006 and gone on to create the upbeat indie stadium rock of Fantasies, it's nonetheless refreshing to hear the talent of an artist be strong as ever without the frills of electronics and amplification. Moral of the story: Don't fuck with Emily Haines. She is better than you.
