Feist: Pleasing To The Ears
October 31, 2011 § 1 Comment
I absolutely am in music heaven with Leslie Feist’s new album Metals. Absolutely.
The wonderful ladies of Mountain Man have been lending their beautiful harmonies with Feist on stage. This, dear Readers, is a beautiful combination. Beautiful. I picked three of my current favorites on the album to share, because I couldn’t just pick one. However, if the music clips are pleasing to your ears, stream the whole album here.
The strong percussion of The Bad In Each Other automatically drew me in. The thudding of the drum, the electric guitar, saxophone, and harmonies created this tension that parallels well with the relationship in the song. Give a listen – what do you think?
Another song on repeat is Bittersweet Memories. The recording has this great moment where the strings and vocal harmonies come together on the bridge with the following words:
Can’t go back, I can’t go on
I remember us ‘fore we turn to dusk
Just when these feelings were all about
When we still could trust in our hearts
This instrumentation in Caught A Long Wind is unbelievably beautiful.
A nod to Feist.
