Artist Bio
FeistHere are the things you need to know about Feist. She's much more than just the torch singer leaning against the ballad with a lone spotlight on her. In a past life, she was a shouty battle of the bands teen queen in a Calgary punk band. She's made bashful indie boys swoon with her brash riffs playing guitar with Toronto rock band By Divine Right and her shout-out fronting of Canadian indie rock genre definers Broken Social Scene. She's stubborn and meticulous about things like the EQ level on the stereo and her long honed guitar tone. She's been placed in the role of the most unlikely fashion icon, but mostly she's a tomboy who doesn't really do make-up. She may be able to warble a bouncy foxtrot like Mushaboom that your grandparents wish they could?ve cranked on their Victrola, but she also breathed life into surreal sock puppets alongside her electro-trash BFF Peaches in Berlin and beyond. The cult-favoured original, raw demos for "Let It Die" and "The Reminder "included the sound of streetcars rattling along city streets. Onstage she can pivot between being the solo singer captivating a room with her guitar or take on the role of leading a band of three brothersNobody, least of all Feist, anticipated the tremendous response listeners around the world would have to "Let It Die". Awards were won. Her name appeared in Best Of The Year lists. Eager bandwagon-jumpers were turned away from festival showcases. All of a sudden, a girl who was barely an unknown secret outside of Canada had top 10 radio singles filtering through malls and grocery stores. Her response? To keep touring.
Reviews
ReviewSource Entertainment Weekly
Review Like her 2005 breakthrough "Let It Die", Leslie Feist's latest shows how this critics' darling also woos regular folks. She has a sexy, slyly powerful, charmingly imperfect voice. She crafts deliciously catchy, acoustic-based songs with motifs recalling '80s radio hits (from Springsteen to Soft Cell) as much as the '00s Toronto indie-rock scene she began in. And her simple lyrics both seduce (''On milky skin my tongue is sand'') and court singalongs (''1, 2, 3, 4/Tell me that you love me more''). In short: "The Reminder" is another multifaceted gem.

Quotes
Christian John Wikane, PopMatters ...an exceptional album that should be experienced solely on the merits its stunning musicality.
Shain Shapiro, Drowned In Sound Enough variety is here, and it all fits together as beautifully...
The New York Times ...a modestly scaled but quietly profound pop gem...filled with love songs and hints of mystery.
