When Leslie Feist released Funeral for a Fallen King - Lusitano - Where Spirits Wander (File) breakthrough album Let It Dieshe became an indie icon almost instantly.
Her pretty, sometimes melancholic love songs, her clear campfire voice, her vaguely jazz- and disco-influenced arrangements highlighted no better than with her cover of the Bee Gees ' "Inside and Out"and her association with darlings Broken Social Scene wooed critics and music fans alike. Her follow-up, The Reminderwill serve as proof that Feist 's success was no fluke, as the album contains more of the same sweet, introspective lyrics and chords that float around love and longing or lack thereof like cottonwood seeds in late spring.
Because that's what The Reminderlike Let It Diereally is: a collection of warm, lazy music made for those 1234 - Feist - The Reminder - Album Sampler afternoons that creep into evening before you realize it. But this can also be a drawback. At times, she borders on a kind of sappiness that seems better suited to Top 40 Matrix -produced pop songs 1234 - Feist - The Reminder - Album Sampler hipster-blog accolades. The same cannot be said however for "Brandy Alexander," which is too syrupy for its own sake much like the drink on which it's basedwith its repeated phrase "He's my Brandy Alexander" juxtaposed with "I'm his Brandy Alexander" and "Goes down easy," as Motown-esque harmonies jump in to emphasize that last word.
Why Feistwho displays her lyrical skills in tracks like "The Water," "My Moon My Man," Raining In Baltimore - Counting Crows - Across A Wire (Live In New York City) her reinterpretation of Nina Simone 's "See-Line Woman" incorrectly identified as "Sea Lion Woman""Sealion," believes it necessary to include such saccharine lines is confusing, and hints at the suspicion that while she undoubtedly enjoyed herself during the making The Remindershe wasn't really challenging herself with the process.
She follows the same path she took with Let It Die -- which, being as strong as it was, is certainly not the worst decision she could've made -- and does it well, which means that the album does end up a consistently good listen.
