Long considered one of the planet’s most bombastic live acts and foremost purveyors of abrasive melodicism, METZ has spent the majority of their 11-year tenure crisscrossing the globe and bringing their unparalleled energy directly to the people. Determined to connect with their fans and to find a way within the confines of the pandemic to create a live experience as dynamic as their most recent full length, Atlas Vending, METZ took to the stage in October 2020 at the Opera House in Toronto to livestream a performance of Atlas Vending in its entirety. Today the band announced the release of this raw and powerful performance.

The LP can be pre-ordered through megamart.subpop.comMETZ’s merch store, and Bandcamp, and will be available November 5th in select independent retailers in North America. Grab one while supplies last.

To celebrate this release, today METZ have shared the striking live performance video for “Pulse” from the Opera House. The opening song of a set that grabs you, shakes you, and doesn’t let go until the final crushing blow and the feedback subsides, this video, and the full Live at the Opera House album and film, are clear reminders of the unparalleled energy and spirit of METZ live. METZ return to the stages of North America this November and December and will tour Europe & the UK in the spring of 2022.

Hear Porridge Radio’s cover of The Shins “New Slang,” Available Now at all Streaming Services

Sub Pop is pleased to announce the release of Porridge Radio’s cover of The Shins’ “New Slang,” available today worldwide through all DSPs. Listen here. The song is the B-side from the group’s forthcoming contribution to the subscription-only Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6. The A-side, Porridge Radio’s cover of Wolf Parade’s “You Are A Runner And I Am My Father’s Son” will be available on all DSPs August 9th. 

Porridge Radio’s Dana Margolin had this to say about the Singles Club contribution, “Sub Pop are a label I’ve loved for a long time, and when they asked if we wanted to release some songs with them this summer, I looked through their back catalog and chose 2 songs to cover that had a big impact on me as a teenager.”

Fans can get the limited-edition 7” single and many other excellent records by subscribing to the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 6.

Beginning as Dana Margolin’s sadcore bedroom project, Porridge Radio developed into an idiosyncratic post-punk 4-piece after she moved to Brighton and met her future bandmates. They inelegantly knot together Margolin’s vicious, furious emotional outpourings with beautiful pop melodies. After a series of demos, and the growing legend of their intense live shows, their lofty debut Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers came out via Memorials of Distinction in 2016, documenting struggles with life, love and boredom, and showcases the scrapbook absurdism at Porridge Radio’s core.
The band’s 2020 Secretly Canadian debut, Every Bad, is a culmination of what has been in their head for some time. Every Bad arrived full of grand, sweeping ambition – with vocals so urgent that it often feels like it is moved by compulsion rather than choice, with all the rawness of early Karen O, and influences as disparate as Charli XCX and The Cranberries. After receiving wide critical acclaim across the board, Every Bad was shortlisted as one of the Hyundai Mercury Prize’s albums of 2020.

Porridge Radio has scheduled international tour dates spanning July 2021 and June 2022. Please visit the band’s tour dates page for more info.

Watch Loma’s new, official video for “Going Out” available worldwide now on all DSPs from Sub Pop

Loma has delivered a bright new video for their performance of “Going Out,” a cover of Danish pop artist Dinner’s 2014 single. The visual, directed by and starring Loma’s Emily Cross, follows the singer on a gorgeous sunny day throughout the woods and meadows of southern coastal England, where going out is a new—and slightly nervous—prospect.
Loma’s Dan Duszynski says of the song, “Songs are like cats—sometimes they just pick you. Emily and I first heard “Going Out” while we were playing at a record store in Austin a few years ago. I went to the counter to ask who it was, and the album (Dinner’s Three EPs) is still in rotation at our home/studio. We couldn’t resist making our own version because it always cheers us up.  Who doesn’t need that right now?” 

Loma’s Don’t Shy Away, the group’s incredible and absorbing album from 2020, is available now on CD/LP/CS/DL worldwide through Sub Pop. The eleven-track effort, which features lyric videos for “Homing” and “Ocotillo” and official videos for “Half Silences,” “Don’t Shy Away,” “I Fix My Gaze,” and “Elliptical Days,” was produced and recorded by the band at Dandysounds in Dripping Strings, Texas—except for “Homing,” which was produced by Brian Eno.
Don’t Shy Away saw praise from international outlets like MOJOUncutBBC 6 MusicPitchfork, Rolling Stone, StereogumExclaimBandcampBrooklyn VeganUnder the RadarSydney Morning HeraldThe Line of Best FitRecord CollectorAll MusicDustedOur Culture, and more. Loma is currently at work on the follow-up to Don‘t Shy Away.

What people are saying about Loma’s Don’t Shy Away:
“Loma’s music unspools in vivid panoramas - sometimes downbeat and rainy, sometimes splashy and urgent, reminiscent of the mid-‘90s school of Bowery Electric post-rock. Yet the trio ensure all the glitches and layers (clarinet, brass, guitar) add bright pin-sharp accents not blurry textural flab, Cross’s voice glinting through ‘Blue Rainbow’s’ electro-cabaret judder or the Morphine-like rumble of ‘Ocotillo’.” ★★★★ MOJO
Don’t Shy Away is a stronger, fully realized collection than its predecessor, kicking off with the absorbing opening trio — “I Fix My Gaze,” “Ocotillo,” and “Half Silences,” each elevated by singer Emily Cross’ bewitching vocals — and never letting up from there.” [“The Best Albums of October 2020”] - Rolling Stone
“…Don’t Shy Away is an invitation. It honors the sacred space of uncertainty, acknowledging lingering darkness while trusting in the possibility that brighter, more brilliant worlds lie within reach.” - Pitchfork
“Atmospheric melodies…Cross’ otherworldly vocals blend to absorbing effect.” [8/10] -
Don’t Shy Away is ultimately as gratifying as it is ambitious. Brian Eno was right: Loma are the real deal.” [8/10] -  Exclaim!
“For listeners who have a penchant for darker, glossier rock in the vein of Portishead, Jane Weaver, or even Radiohead, this is an essential listen.”  [8/10] - The Line Of Best Fit
Don’t Shy Away is an absolutely beautiful record – hypnotic, haunting, mysterious and comforting”  -  Brooklyn Vegan
“Fans longing for the return of Portishead will find solace in the grey-skied gloom of songs like “Thorn”, “Half Silences” or the pulsing “Given A Sign.” This is contrasted with the brightness shining through the stately instrumentation of “Elliptical Days” or the cycling synths of “Breaking Waves Like A Stone,” swelling in size towards its triumphant conclusion.”  [“Album of the Day”] - Bandcamp
To anyone enamored with the effortless elegance of Loma’s debut, some of Don’t Shy Away’s more adventurous and synth-heavy production may feel a little jarring. However, surrender to the album’s luscious sound design, emotive vocal performances and smart narrative arc and it can be just as intoxicating. As far as front-to-back album listening experiences go, it’s among the year’s best.” - Dusted
“Gorgeous, otherworldly music” [“Elliptical Days”] - Stereogum
“Don’t Shy Away is a spectacular album, a vivid record, which gently deals with the themes of loneliness, temporariness and finding light in absolute darkness.” - Music Letter
“Bigger in scope than the three piece’s self titled debut, Don’t Shy Away is on a whole other sonic level. It encourages us to not just exist in the spaces that we inhabit, but to find every possibility they could offer. As second records go, they don’t come much more mesmerically splendorous than this.”- Secret Meeting
“All in all, Don’t Shy Away is gracefully immersive, aesthetically ambitious and more than worth a listen.” - MXDWN
“There’s healthy disarray, there’s beauty, and there’s real poignant sadness but most of all there’s true humanity.” [8.5/10] - Still Listening
“Unfurling with a patient and solitary kind of splendour, their music is evocative but never perfunctory, brimming with textures that are vaporous yet vividly drawn. Don’t Shy Away distils those elements that were present in their debut to a more refined form, resulting in their most mesmerizing and rewarding effort yet.” ★★★★ - Our Culture
“In sound and narrative, indie supergroup Loma deliver an intelligent and emotive piece of post-modern cinema on their superb sophomore album, Don’t Shy Away.” - The Revue
