Praise for Metropolitan Farms and Our Hero Pleads His Flimsy Case
The debut album from Portland band Metropolitan Farms, Our Hero Pleads His Flimsy Case, is a charming reminder of the era of classic ‘60s albums… plenty of gems scattered throughout, particularly the excellent opening track “Stars All Fall”… [Metropolitan Farms] have fun making quick bursts of guitar pop that, more likely than not, will get lodged in your head.
Ned Lannamann, Portland Mercury
A power trio in the truest sense of the word! The songs on their Our Hero Pleads His Flimsy Case CD achieve the powerpop trifecta: catchy sing-along choruses, sparkling vocals, and energetic lightning quick chord changes! Fans of classic purveyors of the genre such as Jellyfish, The Posies, and Fountains of Wayne should sit up and take notice! Definitely a band after IPO’s heart!

[Metropolitan Farms’] hooky songs and fun, twisted (in a good way!) lyrics will make you pay lots of attention! I really like their CD, Our Hero Pleads His Flimsy Case.
David Bash, International Pop Overthrow Festival
Metropolitan Farms live play catchy power pop tunes… there is an upbeat, sunny quality to the sound of the tunes, even if they are about “flesh eating bacteria and double negatives.” Watching these guys made me smile with is a GOOD thing.
These guys are who they are and they’re not trying to be anything that they are not. It’s refreshing.
