FEIST on Interscope-Cherry Tree Records

I just was given the FEIST record and I'm pretty impressed!! What a voice. You may know her from the BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE, as she's been around for awhile.


"Feist joined Broken Social Scene in the recording of their sophomore effort, You Forgot It in People. The album, which was released in 2002, became a critical success among the indie crowds after winning a Juno Award for "Alternative Album of the Year in 2003. Feist had already had plans for a second solo album by this time. When she wasn't touring North America and Europe with Broken Social Scene, Feist and Renaud Letang of Manu Chao and Chilly Gonzales went back and forth between Calgary, Toronto, and Paris for its recording. Let It Die was released on Arts & Crafts in May 2004. Feist has also contributed vocals to works by Kings of Convenience, Apostle of Hustle, and Jane Birkin."

So if you don't have it, I'd recommend picking it up, it's gorgeous.

Last weekend the Juno Awards bestowed the crown of Best New Artist upon Feist at their annual ceremony. The Canadian songstress also took home the award for Best Alternative Album for her new record "Let It Die". Arcade Fire who? U.S. audiences will finally be treated to the release of Feist's debut "Let It Die" later this month and will be able to catch her jawdropping live show as she heads out on tour with British Sea Power.
