Tagged by @zimahmadi! Day 3 of 12 (I know it's supposed to be 10, but for feeds sake), 12 all time favorite albums. What really made an impact and is still on your rotation list, even if now and then.
I've chosen #Feist's "Metals" album because it's stuck with me since 2011 and has aged gorgeously throughout the years. I remember sitting on the plane ride back to Malaysia from the states, and they had this album on the TV. So I soaked up this strange new sound.. full of unabashed rawness as though it is a soundtrack to a really good film shot in the wild, wild west.
Even though my initial impression of her was learnt thru "Mushaboom" and "My moon my man", Metals allowed me to see that there's so many facets of urself that u can present through your music. Your music is also somewhat a report of how much you've grown, whether you've learnt to experiment with different sounds, changed Ur lyrical style and even Ur general feel. Feist is a maestro at this, and she continues to inspire me with the different kinds of energy + love she exudes; the easiest example of this is the difference of how she commands the mood of the listener with songs like TBIEO and Cicadas and Gulls. Both are different, but somewhat the same!
1. The Bad in Each Other
2. How come you never go there
3. Cicadas and Gulls
Post the cover and nominate a person each day to do the same!
