Feist Releases ‘Metals’ + Stream, Tour Dates, & Contest

 

The day is finally here! After several video vignettes and a lot of squirming, we can rest easy to the awesomeness that is a new Feist album. Metals is the follow-up to her 2007 breakout, The Reminder, which earned 4 Grammy nominations.

Recorded in Big Sur, California, the sound on Metals is characteristically experiential, ranging from low rumbling and moody ambiences to brutal and intense heart-wrenchers. Take a listen to a few of the tracks below.

Emvee ft. Bonjay: “Glitch Feisty Rub” + MP3

Drawing their name from spice island slang for “Good God!,” Bonjay were born in a basement at Ottawa’s legendary Disorganised parties. What began as a simple crowd pleasing party lark has developed into a serious commitment to songwriting and production, including remixes for labels like Mad Decent, Ninjatune and Ghetto Arc (XL Recordings). With Alanna on the mic and Pho on beats & effects, their live performance is a high-energy sound system of bass and soul. Dancehall innovation, indie sentiments, and R&B hooks – these are the sounds booming out from the jeeps, towers and headphones of young Toronto, and Bonjay makes them their own.
