Front Row (Metric) remix

My third Metric remix. This time it's 'Front Row', another song taken from their excellent Fantasies album. This remix is a shoe-gazy, reverb-soaked, melodic indie-rock song, with glockenspiel, triangle, slide guitar, and various shakers, all sprinkled over layers of echoey guitar fuzz and tight, methodical acoustic drums.

I slowed the original down a little, so despite all the noise it now feels quite laid back. Combined with Emily Haines's soft vocal harmonies, I think it captures quite well that hazy vibe of a summer's evening. Listen for yourself below.
