Metronomy to curate LateNightTales compilation

By | Published on Friday 22 June 2012


Metronomy have been appointed custodians of 2012’s third instalment (and the 29th overall) of the LateNightTales compilations series, past curators of which have included MGMT, Trentemøller and The Flaming Lips.

As well as leftfield hip hop from OutKast and Tweet, auteur synth-funk from Tonto’s Exploding Head Band, and the fourth chapter of Paul Morley’s ongoing spoken-word saga ‘Lost For Words’, the collection also includes Metronomy’s exclusive cover of Jean Michel Jarre’s ‘Hypnose’. So that’s all very outré.
