I know this isn’t new news to many of you, but if you haven’t purchased the new Feist album, Metals, do yourself a favor and do just that, asap. I can say with confidence that I think it’s better than The Reminder. Maybe I’m bias because my heart associates The Reminder with a bad breakup for me, but I think Metals has a little more edge, a little more tooth. It’s less airy. I think “How Come You Never Go There” is my favorite track, the harmony on the “whoa whoa” part is just stellar, but “A Commotion” is a close second because the drum beat pumps me up, big time. And “Caught A Long Wind” is just gorgeous, the perfect song to listen to at night with a glass of wine.
ps. thank you for the birthday wishes! It was a good one.
