Best Of ’11: Feist

Feist – Metals

If there was ONE album this year that I’d recommend to a music lover, it would be this one. And it’s not an album you can just appreciate with one listen. You’ve got to give it time, listen closely and quietly, and let it sink in. These songs have a feeling to them that comes with sitting and breathing, observing the world around you, and appreciating the beauty of life. It sounds like a massive undertaking, but I think it came easily to Leslie Feist, after she allowed herself an entire year without writing or creating music. I’m not sure exactly what she spent that year doing, but it’s clear that she plugged into something extremely special.
