early this past spring, broken social scene’s feist released her third solo album *the reminder*.  after taking a late start for myself to actually relax with a pair of headphones and pay attention to her colorful style, the emotionally effective musical payoff came naturally. inbetween stretches of folk crescendos, upbeat jazz pop vibrancies and bittersweet realizations, this became my album of the summer.

feist honestly attributes songwriting in such a heartfelt and personal way, that she easily brings to mind the exact simplicity of how good music should be.  the way of how its become so apparent that there needs to be more open feeling like this. the beauty discovered deep inside of feist’s intensity displays a humble approach to being vulnerable as a woman.. and completely powerful all at the same time.

i love you more
i love you more
i dont know what i knew before
but now i know i want to win the war

i feel it all

 

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    Welcome back and thanks for the post!

    That is my favorite song from Feist’s new album…I saw her play in Quebec City in May and it was one of the highlights of my summer when she played “I Feel It All.” It just makes me love life so much. Haha, that sounds so cheesy, but there it is. A silly little song…

    I like what you said in your biography about music and art making you feel safe and at home. They make me feel grounded and sane. I make art while listening to music. They both go hand in hand.
