Trend: Sharp Girlrock

I'm sure it's my selection bias, but I keep running into sharp, elegant girlrock these days. It started out with Metric, but now Roh Delikat is joining up, and I can only approve--and wish they'd tour together.

Roh Delikat's 10 Brand is every bit as stylish, bombastic and addictive, with echoing, cyclic interludes that sound almost like Tool; Laudanum is hazier, less focused, less aggressive, gathering momentum as it goes and then starts releasing suddenly and sweetly. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go buy Sunny . . .

Ahhh! I just had discovered your blog when the very first post caught my attention. Metric! Love the music and Emily Haines' voice. Being German - the name "Roh Delikat" of course sounded interesting, even without further info. Maybe a bit bumpy (and "raw"), not as elegant as "Metric" sounds, but interesting. The same goes for the music. I like the voice and have to relisten to the songs when I'm a bit less sleepy ... Tell us about "Sunny" if you want, please!
