On her third full-length album, Feist has moved farther from her early mix of jazz and bossa nova-inspired indie rock. "Metals" sounds more like Fleet Foxes, Neko Case, or Iron & Wine than Amy Winehouse.
In fact, it's pretty easy to picture Iron & Wine's Samuel Beam taking over Feist's part on the acoustic "Cicadas And Gulls."
Other standouts include "The Bad in Each Other," "Graveyard" and "Anti-Pioneer."
The closest track to Feist's previous sound, with its slight R&B feel, is the brilliant single "How Come You Never Go There."
Not that this new direction detracts. The album is delicate and expertly-crafted.
Much of it sounds like the soundtrack to closing time at a small bar on a slow night: intimate, introspective and full of night thoughts.
