Ethereal a cappella folk trio Mountain Man‘s intuitive, soaring harmonies are almost impossible to describe — lush yet minimal, reverent yet earthy. Formed when they were students at Vermont’s Bennington College, Mountain Man has captivated listeners with the sonic alchemy created by the blend of their voices. This magical sound – three voices that join to create one beautiful instrument – caught the notice of Leslie Feist, who extended an invitation for the trio to join her onstage as part of her band. They agreed, and will accompany Feist on her world tour, which continues in North America beginning in April.
Following her highly acclaimed fall tour, Feist announces a new string of state side spring and summer dates in support of Metals (Cherrytree/Interscope). Kicking things off with a two weekend stint at Coachella, Feist will make stops everywhere from Austin, TX, to the famed Radio City Music Hall in New York City, a headlining spot at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, IL, and a set at the famed New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Feist debuts her new video for the single “The Bad In Each Other” off her critically-acclaimed album, Metals (Cherrytree/Interscope). Directed by Martin De Thurah (James Blake, Glasvegas), the video captures glimpses of something human. We get a peek inside something real between people – could be loss, longing or love – things which are about being a human being.

Feist emerges with her fourth full-length album, Metals, after an 18 month hiatus from music. Leslie Feist has often been compared to other contemporary chanteuses such as Cat Power, Lykke Li and Yael Naim. She enjoyed much success with her previous albums Let It Die and The Reminder and is perhaps best known by the masses for her pop song “1234.”

FYF Fest once again returned to the Los Angeles State Historic Park in downtown Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend, and despite the blistering summer heat, the extensive lineup of bands attracted a huge turnout of around 20,000 music lovers who were ready to celebrate a day of indie, punk, and electronic rock. The event started at noon, so shortly thereafter we parked and followed the trail of concert-goers (and hipsters) as they made their way through the traffic-packed streets of Chinatown. The skyline of downtown Los Angeles served as a perfect backdrop, especially when the nighttime air brought cool relief from the sun, as the city’s bright lights shined in the distance.
