It sure seems like you can't go one weekend in the summer without a music festival.
Last night (April 21), Canada held its annual JUNO Awards, its version of the Grammys, and Mumford and Sons, Grimes, Metric and Leonard Cohen were among the artists to pick up prizes. It was also a big night for Carly Rae Jepsen -- who bagged Album, Pop Album and Song of the Year -- and Justin Bieber, who didn't show up (he was probably dealing with tigers or gas masks or something) but snagged his third straight Fans' Choice award.
Canadian indie rock outfit Metric have spent the better part of the last six months touring the world in support of their latest album, 'Synthetica,' and the band's new video for 'Breathing Underwater,' the second single off the disc, features footage from their various travels. From clips filmed backstage at several different venues to live performance footage shot during their set at this summer's Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and beyond, the 'Breathing' video shows a snippet of life on the road with Metric.
