10 Albums, 10 Days – Feist – Metals

Feist’s stellar album Metals is the type of album that I can listen to over and over again in a variety of moods.  This album has a lot of things that I really enjoy in music – a great opening sondownloadg in the ‘Bad in Each Other’ that sets the tone for the rest of the album, notes that hang in suspension leaving evocative gaps in the music,  cool lyrics that set the landscape for each song, incredible mixes and fills, and a unique voice.  There is an excellent mix of louder more energetic songs mingled with mellower, dreamier songs.  My personal favourite songs are ‘Undiscovered First’ and ‘Comfort Me’ because they seem to bring most of the musical themes on the album together in one song and they both seem like they could be pretty awesome jam songs that leave lots of room for flexibility in a live show.
