When I walked through the door my wife she lay upon the floorAs Ive mentioned before, MDA (Must Discover Artists) doesn't make other artists solely featured here any less adept to music or less suitable of acknowledgment per se but only to widen each eargasm experience by delivering what's currently hot and full of buzz out there while filtering sleazy from superior. After 4 reeling months Metaphor brings back to you her well-preserved post as being away from the interweb cause me an overflowing list of news-worthy artists in my desktop.
And with tears her eyes did soar, I did not know why
Then I looked into her hand and I saw the telegram
Said that I was a brave, brave man, but that I was dead

If only it was only me now.This is certainly a rare post as Ive never featured shows and web projects here before. But I'm glad to make an exception as Im fairly late with this discovery.

You know its hurts so bad just like I knew that it would,This is another band Ive been meaning to bring up even before the mini-hiatus of this blog. The Sounds is a Swedish New Wave band with influences of punk and pop/Synth-pop. They somehow reminds me of The Clicks in retrospect with bands also such as Roxette and Ace of Base. +/-
But I'd do it again, do it again if I could.

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?Someone told me that rock stars can sing anything. America for example does that exquisitely. Back when the rock revolution was just given birth in the pop culture, and new wave or heavy metal music was a mother's version of evil, America became popular with their light/folk take on rock music. America is best known for their songs, “A Horse With No Name” and “Sister Golden Hair". Not really a favorite of critics (remember The Beatles?), but they somehow crawled their way and still continually doing so with their exceptionally successful and commercially selling singles and albums. +/-
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
The clock keeps ticking and my thoughts are streaming.
These five months have been excessively busy for me and it was not a no-brainer if I should continue tending this blog. In the first place, I never intended for this blog to be as updated as possible. Honestly, I think I put up this as a form of a creative release and a way of looking for people who appreciate music the way I do. So, for the next weeks, months and hopefully years, yours truly will post only random entries and feature bands or singers that necessarily wouldn't be up-to-date with the current music fiasco. One thing's for sure, craptastic sound would be generally filtered as entries would be minimize. I wouldnt necessary promote bands or labels and Metaphor might become my own personal journal. Now I know this isn't any good news but be sure to check out other amazing blogs if you like to stick around to a more all-around and active blog such as Popsense, Persona Sauna, Pretty Much Amazing, TSURURADIO, Pasta Primavera, WAWSTF and Pigeons and Planes.
Thank you for all the support. This blog would be forever grateful. BBS!

This track is included in the Dark Was The Night compilation. Along with the other tracks in the ace compilation, You Are The Blood is a cover (Castanets). Laden with thumping electronic beats and hypnotic lyrical intones in between, this 10-minute song is not your usual Sufjan Stevens piece. If you want to listen to other tracks, just visit Dark Was The Night myspace. As mentioned before, each track will be release/stream for a day. Get a move on.
You Are The Blood by Sufjan Stevens
All she wants is a boyfriend
She gets one-night stands
He Wasn't There
Straight to Hell
I dont want to spoil Its Not Me, Its You but alas five great tracks are available for download right now. These songs remind me why I hold on so much to Lily Allen. Basing on the new leaks, Its Not Me, Its You is a definitive album on my list. Be sure to watch its release on Feb 9.
