The summer of ’08 was a particular highlight of my life. I was fifteen years old and puberty was in full swing. This meant that I was riddled with acne, sported a not-fashionable haircut and was just getting into my phase of adoring emo music; I believe I was known as the studmuffin of Essex. In that same time English electronic band Metronomy experienced a huge crash through the glass ceiling thanks to the seminal release of their second album Nights Out. With this new record Summer 08 Metronomy – well, Joseph Mount – looks to discuss all of the shards of glass it made in a way that only he can, through the medium of off-kilter funk music and abject loneliness.
