Knives Don't Have Your Back
Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton
Knives Don't Have Your Back is the debut studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton. It is not her own debut album, as she released under her own name in limited number of copies an earlier work in 1996, the Cut in Half and Also Double album, which was self-released. The album was released in September 2006 on Last Gang Records. It debuted at 28 in Canada and has sold 20,000 copies there. She has stated that Metric is still her first priority.
The album is a collection of piano-driven songs backed with soft strings and horns and is said to feature guest spots by Sparklehorse's Scott Minor, members of Stars, Broken Social Scene and Metric.
She is quoted as saying the following: "When I was a little kid…I would creep downstairs to the piano and write rudimentary songs about imaginary places. I'm told the first song I ever wrote was a love song to a cranberry tree. I always used the mute pedal. I hated the idea of anybody hearing me. Everywhere I've lived while working with Metric, I've written songs on the piano and played them for no one. On the advice of a friend, I decided I'd better start recording them before they were forgotten.
Fixin To Thrill
Fixin to Thrill is the second studio album by Canadian electronic music band Dragonette, released on September 25, 2009 by Universal Music Group.
Honeysuckle Weeks is the second full length studio album by Indie pop band The Submarines. It was released through iTunes on April 15, 2008, and was released physically on May 13, 2008. The album was released through Canadian label Nettwerk.
Art of Doubt
Art of Doubt is the seventh studio album by Canadian indie rock band Metric, which was released on 21 September 2018. The first single, "Dark Saturday", was released on 13 July 2018, followed by "Dressed to Suppress" on 26 July, and "Now or Never Now" on 4 September. On 13 September NPR published a live stream of the album.
Pagans in Vegas
Pagans in Vegas is the sixth studio album by Canadian indie rock band Metric, which was released on 18 September 2015. The first single, "The Shade", was released on 11 May 2015. "Cascades" was released as the second of the album on 2 June 2015. On 7 July 2015, the band released "Too Bad, So Sad" as the third single via a new iOS and Android app it created called "Pagan Portal", which allows fans to listen to tracks off the album as they're released and read newsletters from the band.
Synth-bedazzled indie rock band Metric have always made plainly catchy pop songs driven by singer/keyboardist Emily Haines' deceptively clever lyrics. On previous albums, concerns as weighty as war, the state, capitalism and mortality have lurked on the outskirts of her songs while more personal romantic struggles played out in the foreground. More than just a reference to the band's use of synthesizers, the title of Metric's fifth studio album Synthetica signposts its lyrical themes: about telling the real from the artificial, the distances between representation, perceptions and reality, between surfaces and their hidden interiors. Not that you need to worry about all that to enjoy these songs for their dramatic synths and guitars, and Haines' tuneful and charismatic singing.

Grow Up and Blow Away
Grow Up and Blow Away is the third studio album by the Canadian indie rock band Metric. The album was recorded in 2001, but delayed for years by their record label.
As the years passed, the band's sound changed to the point where they no longer felt the album would be what the fans expected to hear, so Metric recorded a completely new album, Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?, and released that instead. Last Gang Records later purchased the rights to the album and released it on June 26, 2007.
Compared with the 2001 version, the songs "London Halflife" and "Soft Rock Star" from the 2001 EP Static Anonymity were added. "Torture Me", "Fanfare", and "Parkdale" were removed. Also, the order of some songs was changed and other songs were slightly re-worked.
The album's title song was used in a television commercial in North America for Polaroid Corporation's I-Zone Sticky Film in 2000-01.
Live It Out
Live It Out is the second album released by the Canadian indie rock band Metric. It was released in September 27, 2005, on Last Gang Records. The album has sold 45,000 copies in the US, and went platinum in Canada selling 100,000 units.
Live It Out was shortlisted for the 2006 Polaris Music Prize and nominated for "Alternative Album of the Year" at Juno Awards 2006. The album was also chosen as one of Amazon.com's Top 100 Editor's Picks of 2005 and the 38th best album of 2006 by NME.
There were three singles released from the album: "Monster Hospital", "Poster of a Girl" and "Empty". "Handshakes" was a radio promo, released only in Canada.
Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
