***winner - polaris prize 2012*** astoundingly intimate, yet often exuberant, ‘metals’ is rife with transcendent & unforgettable pop gems.

before laura marling, feist was the journo’s female pop darling of choice but she’s been awfully quiet since her 2007 sophomore so it’s great to have her back, offering us a timely ahem,….reminder….of why she’s one cool lady. recorded in big sur, california & co-produced by longtime collaborators chilly gonzales & mocky, as well as newcomer valgeir sigurðsson (bjork, bonnie "prince" billy), ‘metals’ embodies both the intensity & calmness that feist is capable of, so we move from imposing & forceful majesty to beautiful, atmospheric, slow melancholia – by turns contemplative & delicate & dynamic & moving. these irresistible songs happily meld tori amos’ drama, sufjan stevens’ orchestration & joanna newsom’s quirkiness into a warm, effortless collection.
