New Metome: “Sweeter Than Sweet”

Osaka’s Metome has always been good at making space work for him – as tightly controlled as his songs have been, they’ve always relied on timing to make them snap even harder, and sometimes a second long pause was all that was needed to make a sudden rush of electronics all the more powerful. “Sweeter Than Sweet” really makes the most of space…it uses lots of break to make the fluttery synths and hard bopping drums (plus gun-cocking sounds) smack all the harder. Metome has always been willing to stretch himself, but here’s an interesting new direction for him. Listen above.
