Much was made of Leslie Feist’s last LP ‘The Reminder’, which produced huge crossover hits in ‘My Moon My Man’, ‘I Feel It All’, and the charming, advert-featured ’1234′. Folksy brush strokes of ‘The Reminder’ exist alongside daubs of darker, earthier colour on the album’s sequel, ‘Metals’, which is now streaming online ahead of its 3 Oct release.
Feist’s musical palette seems broader across her latest offering than in past works, and ‘Metals’ finds her laying out an array of warming folk-pop morsels, enriching her brand of mystic, organic balladry with country inflections and well-placed orchestral accents.
