Feist | Black Session

May 7, 2007 at 7:52 am (Black Sessions, Feist, mp3s)

Exactly how many color-coded secret albums does Feist have? A month or two after discovering the Red Demos, I ran across her Black Session this past weekend. Black Sessions are live recordings, broadcast on the French radio station France Inter during the C’est Lenoir show. Artists like Pulp, Radiohead, Weezer, and apparently, Feist have recorded Black Sessions over the years. These Black Sessions are usually released as extremely limited edition CDs (think 250), and given away as bonuses with other CDs, or sold by France Inter. I’m not sure about the others, but Feist’s Black Session is brilliant. She performs a smattering of songs that would later be seen on Let It Die, along with covers of Broken Social Scene and the Kinks. She’s a little more “quiet and tame” than she normally would be live, lending everything an delicate, acoustic feel. The whole thing sounds like a very intimate affair, with Feist fumbling for words between songs, and the audience suitably hushed during songs. Since you stand almost no chance of ever being able to buy this album, I think it’s okay to post the whole thing. These songs came as a nice little surprise to me this boring weekend, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
