I got a comment yesterday from Josef yesterday to my Highline post:
Haven’t seen a music post in a while. Some great records have just come out. My top 5 this week include Andrew Bird, Laura Viers, Kings of Leon, Patrick Wolf and LCD Soundsystem.
Have I really been slow with the music posts lately? Well you asked for it Josef.
Feist has a huge front page Jon Pareles article in the NY Times Arts and Leisure section today.
I had never heard of Feist six months ago, but I started getting emails and comments from readers that I had to listen to her. No problem, she’s been all over the Hypemachine popular list lately. Then I found out that Feist (her name is actually Leslie Feist) sang with Broken Social Scene and Kings of Convenience. Well that’s all I needed to know. That’s seriously great pedigree in my book.
Her new record, The Reminder, comes out on May 1st and is available on Amazon right now for pre-order. Here’s my favorite track from the record, called 1234. Enjoy.
