The U.K. band Metronomy has a few albums under its belt, but I really think this is its time. Metronomy's Mercury Prize-nominated album The English Riviera is a breakout record for the group, which delighted us with highlights in this recent live performance on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The band occupies a unique space on the musical spectrum: Its sound is based in the world of electronica, but with finely crafted hooks that reflect the best in pop music.
