To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

It's official. It's happening.

Our new album - FANTASIES - will be in stores across the USA & Canada on April 14, 2009 and in the rest of the world shortly thereafter. Starting March 2, 2009, you'll be able to pre-order FANTASIES directly from us here in one of several excellent bundles including limited edition vinyl, deluxe hardcover CD and straight up download, along with some exclusive extras. Anyone who pre-orders will immediately get an MP3 of the first single “Help I’m Alive”. Until then, here is a free download of an acoustic version of “Help I’m Alive”. We’re also working on worldwide touring plans, dates will be announced soon.

When you hand over your money for a concert ticket, what are you really paying for: some idea of the performer you've gleaned from gazing longingly at album covers and compulsively clicking YouTube videos, or the performer as they choose to express themselves on that given day? Is the consumer entitled to a certain expectation of the performance — a satisfaction-guaranteed procession of "the hits"— or should the artist interpret the fan's investment as a vote of confidence, that the fan is willing to follow their every whim? In other words, is the customer really king, relegating the artist to the role of a court jester whose sole purpose is to entertain on demand? Or does the artist, elevated up on the stage and paid for the privilege, still dictate the terms of the contract?

For Metric frontwoman Emily Haines, all these questions came to a head on the evening of March 30, 2008 at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. She was all set to perform the sombre piano-based ballads that comprised the two releases from her solo venture, The Soft Skeleton: Knives Don't Have Your Back and What Is Free To a Good Home? — much of which were written following a time of great sadness and...

I had a chance to see them live 3 years ago in Victoria and I had to say that they were better live then recorded and they are pretty damn good as it is.

Give Me Sympathy - is my current favorite song of theirs.

Fantasies is my favorite album of 2009, and Help, I'm Alive is my favorite single. Is there a separate radio mix? I haven't been able to find it anywhere.
