The last time we received a new album from the Canadian singer-songwriter Leslie Feist was six years ago. With her colourful voice that induces both hope and desperation, and arrangements that features folk-tinged instrumentation as well as distinct rhythmic passages, Feist has become a household name by many. Her stunning catalogue is a work of genius, and even though she released her first piece of music back 1999 not even a single tone of hers sounds dated. This is an artist that succeeds with the noble art of timelessness.
Apart from being a well-known solo artist, Feist is also a part of the Toronto-based collective Broken Social Scene. Her voice can be heard on three albums of theirs, and she will also be featured on their next release that is expected to drop sometime this year. As a solo artist Feist received her big break with “The Reminder” back in 2007. The album, which featured a song highlighted in an Apple-commercial and received four Grammy nominations, introduced FEIST to a whole new audience. With two new projects incoming, 2017 looks like a lot like the year of Feist – just like any other year she decides to release music.
FEIST plays this evening at Azalea.
Today's tune "Pleasure" is the title tune from her fifth studio album "Pleasure", released on 28 April 2017, through Universal Music Canada as a follow up to Metals (2011). Thematically, the album is said to explore "emotional limits ... loneliness, private ritual, secrets, shame, mounting pressures, disconnect, tenderness, rejection, care and the lack thereof.
