METZ 1 (2012)

Adult Swim's Singles Program is blowing it out of the park again this year - first El-P and Killer Mike, then Kitty, now METZ, who are serving up "Can't Understand" as their offering for this week. It's a fantastic track, all driving, blistering guitars, reverb-snarling solos, massive, pounding drums, and Alex Edkins' wonderfully crazed fondness for yelling a single phrase (we love this because it makes singing along so easy!). Most stunningly though, the chorus is pretty damn pop, especially for METZ - it reminds us of how Cloud Nothings are so good at filtering pop sensibilities through an intense, heartbeat-elevating punk lens. Check it out.
