Taking a break today from posting new indie goodness.  This weekend, I was watching one of my favorite movies, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and was reminded that it has an insanely legit soundtrack.  The highlight of the soundtrack is “Black Sheep,” a song by the underrated Metric.  Blessed with the ability to marry pop friendly melodies with darker themes and emotions, Metric’s sound is consistently unique and engaging.  “Black Sheep” keeps Metric’s streak alive, balancing a catchy tune with less than friendly lyrics masked by Emily Haines’ pixyish voice (Hello again, friend of a friend, I knew you when/Our common goal was waiting for the world to end).  Perhaps the best part of the track is at the 3:40 mark, where the guitar solo kicks in.  While not complex, the solo amplifies the song’s emotions and closes it out perfectly.  Enjoy.
