Great new music for fall: Saturday Video Roundup

Chvrches, Metric, Meg Myers and IAMX lead the charge into autumn

No major theme today – just some cool new discoveries. Let’s start with the latest from Chvrches – folks, end to end this is one of the absolute best pop CDs I have ever heard. “Leave a Trace” is the lead single and it’s the earworm from hell, but I’m not sure it’s one of the five best songs on the disc.

I’ve been an IAMX fan for several years. The latest dropped this week and by Chris Corner’s standards it’s pretty upbeat.

Another electropop band I’m in love with is Metric, a band that has a habit of sometimes sounding a little chirpier than they actually are.

Finally, I just want Meg Myers.

Happy Saturday, folks.
