Special mention goes to Metric this week, who are being given their own week on Drowned in Sound! Features include Jimmy’s guide to Toronto, Joshua’s guide to NYC, ‘Fantasies’ Track by Track and an exclusive behind the scenes 3 part documentary, ‘The Rawside of Metric’.

Elsewhere, aside from Swine Flu pandemonium (the man sat next to me on the E3 bus to work today coughed twice..Am I now INFECTED?!!!’) we can link you up to:

** Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Shepherds Bush ** The Horrors on making ‘Primary Colours’ ( which just got a 9/10 in the NME (9/10… 9/10.) ** 3 Strikes back on the French Parliament agenda ** More ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ teasers from messrs Burton/SparkleHorse and Lynch** 

Don’t get Swine Flu if you can help it.
