Metz – “Eraser” (Singles Going Steady)

If you buy one single about stationery this week, it should be this Jawbox-esque lesson in tension and release.

Paul Duffus: If you buy one single about stationery this week, it should be this Jawbox-esque lesson in tension and release. It wears its influences heavily but, with an opening riff that fizzes wildly like a firework let off in a telephone box, who’s complaining? [8/10]

Dustin Ragucos: This is like listening to a live performance from a really bad space at a music festival. That said, this is one of the more bland examples of noise rock to be heard in a while. [4/10]

John Garratt: I don’t want to be that guy who says that there are bands twice METZ’s collective age that pack more edge and substance into a three-minute rock song, but… there are. [3/10]
