Metronomy - Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe)

Because Music

Re-releases are a little pointless, aren’t they? If we didn’t give a monkeys about your album the first time around, why should we now? Well, quite frankly when it comes to Joseph Mount aka Metronomy, you should always give a monkeys. And if you missed out on this debut back in 2006 then SHAME ON YOU. You see, the bizarrely titled Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe) is a corker of a record, combining gloriously lo-fi electronic musings tinged with scratchy riffs, keyboard tinkles, percussive breaks, clicks, tock-ticks, squelches, saxophones and even the occasional melodica. A subtle and beautifully strange listen that is well worth exploring.


Aka Brighton electronica artist and remixer Joseph Mount and his band who play breezy intelligent indie pop.
