Feist: The Reminder

March 2, 2007 at 1:02 am (Feist, mp3s, The Reminder)

Last month Lesie Feist, 2005 Juno Award winner, released the first single from her upcoming album, The Reminder. Well, here I am with a few more tracks. After listening to The Reminder a few times, I can say that it’s easily as good Let It Die. Although there’s no one song with the charm and appeal of Mushaboom, the abundance of original material more than makes up for it.
The record moves at a leisurely pace, letting Feist’s magnificent voice wind it’s way through a series of jazzy, acoustic-style tracks, reminding us exactly why Feist is so beloved. The production particularly stands out; Feist’s gorgeous voice is treated with the utmost respect, sounding wonderfully natural. Sea Lion Woman is one of the faster paced tracks, and provides a nice break from the slower tracks. One Two Three Four a poppy little track, slightly reminiscent of Mushaboom, but only in the most superficial way. However, one of the stand-out moments of the album comes at the very beginning. At the start of the first track, So Sorry, Feist sings “I’m sorry . . .“, thrusting the listener right into the record with Feist’s voice. Don’t worry Feist; you’ve got nothing to be sorry for.

    I just discovered your blog while searching for mp3s of Laura Veirs Saltbreaker and quickly fell in love with it (So pleased to stumble across more Feist too!). Great music, fun, quirky, informative, you have a great style.

    I’ve added this site to my feeds and will definitely be keeping an eye on it! Thanks for the music!
