I was glad to see this title come out on vinyl. I've been somewhat inconsistent in my own mind as to which of her lps I like the best. Feist can be an acquired taste for some I suppose, but give her a listen, I think she'll grow on you. This vinyl is sourced from GZvinyl, I'm not a fan of their vinyl formulation , as it's noisy.
Clean it well and after a few plays, it does seem to be less noisy. This is part of the "Back To Black" vinyl series. I can only assume that other lps in this series will be using the GZ vinyl. Sadly, this was the vinyl used on the latest Dire Straits excellent sounding re-issues, but still had noisy vinyl.
Artist 5 stars Content 4. If Lesie Feist sounds familiar, it's because of her musical resume -- it ranges from Canadian indie-popsters Broken Social Scene to female rapper Peaches to the Kings of Convenience. That sort of resume also makes one wonder -- what will her solo debut, "Let It Die," sound like?
The answer: Stripped down, sensual pop music, with a touch of jazz and trip-hop around the edges. It kicks off with only the strums of an acoustic guitar, before Feist jumps in like an orphaned torch singer.
From there on, Feist doesn't even slow down. She ventures into cheery, catchy pop like "Mushaboom," sensual slow ballads, rippling trippy songs, and smooth torch songs. There's even -- surprisingly -- a cover of the Bee Gees' "Inside And Out," which she gives a funky spin, and a delicately catchy cover of Ron Sexsmith's underrated "Secret Heart.
In other words, pure music. The star of the music is Feist herself; her vocals are front-and-center, and she proves herself a rare kind of singer. No "American Idol" vocal explosions, no hyperdramatics. Instead, Feist flexes her vocals in all sorts of different ways -- breathy, husky, ethereal and coy, and and moving along with the music in perfect sync. Not that Feist's good voice doesn't mean that the music isn't also good.
Most of the instrumentation is based on piano and acoustic guitar, with snapping fingers, cowbells, a hint of synth and handclaps thrown in. It's very simple, and very pretty, whether trying out catchy pop or traditional-sounding folk. Only a few songs, like the clunky "Lonely Lonely," fail to be captivating. Forgot your username?
