Her delicate, ethereal voice comes through the speakers as if it’s just traveled hundreds miles, intended for you and you alone. Canada’s sensation, the female singer/songwriter, Leslie Feist, who calls herself Feist released her new album, The Reminder to rave international reviews.
Reminiscent of a Norah Jones-esque female vocalist, Feist reaches all audiences, all scenarios, all emotions. She’s good playing overhead at a coffee shop, through headphones on the subway, or streaming through car speakers watching the world roll by. Feist recorded The Reminder at her adopted home on the outskirts of Paris. A Parisian feel of loneliness and melancholy masked by decadence pervades her songs.
Although the sumptuous feel of a female voice carries her songs, Feist sets herself apart because of her musical eccentricity. Having made her name as part of the indie-rock group, Broken Social Scene, Feist previously dabbled in the electroclash scene as part of Peaches and went through a gothic stage early on as part of a punk band. Her first Feist album, Let it Die, released in 2004 was sold at Starbucks; the track, “Mushaboom” may be familiar to some. The Reminder is Feist in full maturity. Ever the chameleon, she has certainly transformed herself splendidly. Posted by Kiki Namikas.
