Feist - Metals

It seems that Feist doesn't have her own thread. Anyone else buying this today?

The album is streaming live in her website: Feist - 'Metals' - Exclusive Album Stream I'm waiting for my CD copy, though.

Mine is on the way. I really enjoyed it on first listen (via NPR).

Sons, I must have listened to that stream a good seven or eight times since it went up. Can't get enough. And I'll be headed down to vinyl happy hour in a scant seven hours to get my hands on this bad boy.

I didn't realize it was out already until I saw it at Starbucks.

I'll be buying it this week.

Got it. Glad to see it's a gatefold.

Anyway, this one is more in my wheelhouse than The Reminder has been in a good while. It might even be better. Actually, I think it is. Discuss.

I had no idea it was coming out soon! I'll definitely be getting it.

What should I expect from Feist? Would I dig it? Is it in the same area as St Vincent?

The only thing I know about Feist is that she sings on All to All (or is that Sentimental Xs?)

"All to All" was Lobby. "Sentimental Xs" was Emily Haines. Honestly, I think the only Feist sighting on FRR is buried deep within "Chase Scene."

Ah. I swear I read her name somewhere in the liner notes, but there's eight thousand musicians on every track so who knows...

Feisty was on Letterman last night, by the way.

I'll try to track down some video evidence.

She is vaguely similar to St. Vincent in terms of subject matter and atmosphere, but Feist relies a lot more on voice to carry the songs. Her best tracks, in my opinion at least, are the folk-style ones that give her room to use the voice as the primary instrument - that is why Let It Die is my favorite album of hers by a fair margin. You are not going to get any of the seering guitar work from Feist that you regularly find with St. Vincent, though.
