I just found out about Feist recently, when the new iPod Nano commercial aired not too long ago. Her single, 1234, got stuck in my head, as well as the interesting video, so I immediately checked out the rest of the album on which the single was released, The Reminder. I have no words, it’s just simply amazing. At times jazz, and at other times bossanova, the album is such a cacophony of ambient tricklings and the occasional beat. My favorites are The Water, 1234, I Feel It All, My Moon My Man, and Honey Honey; in that order. It reminds me of Arai Akino, a Japanese artist who sings eerie, ambient songs like Feist.
At this point, I’ve got The Reminder on repeat.
