SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on May 17, 2007 at 9:10 am

FeistReminderSound: Leslie Feist’s clean and powerful crooning leads the way through a hodgepodge of breezy, acoustic folk; loungey, piano ballads; bouncy indie pop/rock; and a couple electronic/vocal excursions that could find a place on a Bjork album.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “My Moon, My Man”; “1234”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Past In Present”; “Brandy Alexander”; “I Feel It All”; “So Sorry”
Recommended: 2004’s Let It Die showcased Feist as a talented vocalist and songwriter, but it sometimes felt too theatrical, whimsical and old-timey. The Reminder still has a classic feel, but is much more modern. And the way she skillfully hops from one style to the next is invigorating. Occasionally, though, she gets a little too mellow.
Grade: B+

    See my short review of this from May 8th. I really like it.

    I am going to do a new top 20 this week myself and Feist will be on it also. Have you heard Nathan, the Americana/Folk band from Winnipeg. It may be a little more Americana than you like but check them out they are on Nettwerk. The vocalist has a similarly alluring quality.
