Where This Meets That
With her new album Metals, Feist sheds the more radio-friendly numbers and digs deeper. She delivers a refreshing and beautiful primarily acoustic collection with elements of jazz, gospel, and easy listening bliss.
I’ve had the album less than 24-hours, and I already love it.
Arrangements are spacious and understated, providing a perfect canvas both for her lovely croon and for unexpected musical shifts (“A Commotion”, “Undiscovered First”). Metals offers a uniquely rich blend of instrumentation and backing vocals that expertly avoid pretentiousness.
I’m going to resist the urge to highlight specific tracks, because the album is really just incredibly cohesive as a whole. It deserves more than one listen from start to finish, and you deserve to listen to it!
