Feist - The Bad In Each Other
As the lead track on Feist's new album Metals, the brilliant The Bad In Each Other has the some might say unenviable task of setting the tone for the next 40 minutes or so of music. And that it does very well indeed, revolving around a windblown, Southern guitar hook.
Like the rest of Metals, the song is the eptiome of earthy, organic roughness - Imagine blasted, sandy vistas straight out of a 60s Western. That is Feist's charm - the juxtaposition of that almost sinister intensity with the ethereal sweetness of her vocals.
Taking to the esteemed Later With Jools Holland, Feist performed a great live version of the track that you can view HERE.
Feist's album Metals is available to download on iTunes now.
