Metric- Grow Up And Blow Away

'Grow Up and Blow Away' was the first recorded album by indie rock band Metric. The album was recorded in 2001, but delayed for years by their record label. As the years passed, the band's sound changed to the point where they no longer felt the album would be what the fans expected to hear, so Metric recorded a completely new album, “Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?”, and released that instead. Last Gang Records later purchased the rights to the album and released it on June 26, 2007.

Simian Mobile Disco- Attack Decay Sustain Release

'Attack Decay Sustain Release' is the debut album from Simian Mobile Disco. It was released on June 18, 2007 on Wichita Recordings and reached #59 in the UK album charts.The title of the album is a reference to the ADSR envelope, a component of many synthesizers, samplers, and other electronic musical instruments the function of which is to modulate some aspect of the instrument's sound — often its volume — over time.
Five of the album's ten tracks ("Hustler", "Tits & Acid", "I Believe", "Hotdog" and lead single "It's The Beat") will have been previously available prior to the album's release.
