Nova Scotia-born Leslie Feist has refined the sound of her hectic career thus far into 13 sparkling musical gems.
She has cavorted in Berlin with Peaches and toured with vast Toronto alt-rock outfit Broken Social Scene, but now, with "The Reminder", the 31- year-old has come brilliantly into her own. A quiet confidence fills slower numbers such as "Limit To My Love", produced by long-time collaborator Gonzales, while the summery verve of "1 2 3 4" and "I Feel It All" provides an upbeat counterbalance.
Feist's delicate voice, which she damaged as a punk-screaming teenager, beguiles throughout.
The yearning ballads are shiny happy pop songs such as "The Moon My Man" and especially "1 2 3 4". The latter is probably the catchiest thing she's ever done, a nursery rhyme style melody set to acoustic guitar, strings, banjo and a quite brilliant brass section. The sound of the summer lies within.
This is a fine album and certainly Feist's best yet.
Whether it be the haunting "Honey Honey" or the swaggering "The Moon My Man", there's guaranteed to be something of interest for all.
The Canadian music scene goes from strength to strength.
Mostly written on the road, the new LP gets its inspiration from the disconnections of non-stop, intercontinental hotel-jumping. Talking about her ephemeral lifestyle in an interview with Pitchfork last year, Feist said, "You just never set roots; you take pleasure in simple conversations, because you know you're not going to have much more than that." Though she's trekked on her own and with bands including By Divine Right and Broken Social Scene for more than a decade, the 31-year-old songwriter sounds desperate for something more than "simple conversation" here.
Unlike the half-covers/half-original split of Let It Die, every song but one was at least co-written by Feist on The Reminder. (And her buzzing take on the traditional playground sing-along "Sea Lion Woman" makes it distinctively Feist-ian anyway.) Whereas her last album's smoothed-out eclecticism could be both daunting and empty, The Reminder is equally diverse yet more full-blooded.Read more ›
I have had some time now to digest the album and I would say that it is a strange mix of perfection and near-misses, but the near-misses are far better than 95% of what's out there. I've since decided that the real reason her voice seems so familiar is a vague resemblance to Ricky Lee Jones rather than my remembering of her prior work.
One of the things that some people liked about her previous album was the intimacy that derived from its restrained production. Well here they've pulled out all the stops and if anything there are a couple of tracks where you actually wish they'd held back(on the reverb' say)a little. But overall I would say that this album benefits hugely from a LESS minimalist approach. While Feist has progressed with this album I'm not convinced it is all in a positive direction.
There is an amazing variety of material on this album, but perhaps not enough killer tracks. It certainly deserves some success and I suspect it will get it.
