I really love this recording and a special thanks goes out to "Nibbler" for sharing the recording recently. I have a lossy video of this session and a few others from Feist's KCRW sessions. But to hear the audio in so much better fidelity really is great. I may one day synchronize this audio with the video and make a new DVD of the performance?

Those of you downloading please leave me a message here or on the Facebook (Community Group or Secret Group) letting me know what works best as far as the links go. I eventually plan on adding a secondary mirror site to my posts as I've always had until the last year or so. Your opinion will help me help you.
The waveform looks excellent and there is no clipping or any work at all done on the audio from the way it sounds (and looks). The mix is perfect too since it was recorded in the studio on 2011-09-09. The broadcast over the air on FM radio was not until 2011-10-26. I guess they didn't want to play the session before the official release of Metals which was on 2011-10-04.
There is no static or off frequency types of noises in this recording that we sometimes hear in FM broadcasted recordings. Nearer to the end of the recording a little hum can be heard at real low volume from amp feedback or something like that. But unless you're listening for it, you really don't or won't even notice it most likely. This is a very clean recording and transfer.
Feist has such a spectacular voice and is such a talented musician I feel. And she surrounds herself with artists that are cut from the same cloth. She is my favorite female singer and has been for a number of years now.
I wish these sessions were as long as the concert was when I saw her in November of 2011. She put on a 1 hour, 41 minute show and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. The crowd loved her performance too it was obvious. The show was inside of a very nice theater. It was a lot different than most of the area outdoor concerts and it had the design and sound that was sharp and clean like you cannot get outdoors. I believe with her attention to sound, detail, and fidelity, this was not by accident where the show was performed.
I cannot wait until Feist has another new recording and tour and comes through my town again. I think she may be back in the studio now due to some recent Facebook clips she has posted. At least I hope that is what she is indicating. It has been four years almost since her last tour.
I hope you enjoy the show...
