Man it is good to have Feist back in my life. Things are always a bit lighter with her around. Stream her feisty new album Metals below.
Feist has a new documentary DVD out. I’m sure many of you already know this. The film recounts the making of her Grammy nominated album The Reminder (Cherry Tree) and it’s ensuing tour, while highlighting the collaborators who helped bring the project together.
Being a little slow on the up take, it took me a little while to realize that she grabbed the title of her new film from a song by the highly underrated folk outfit Little Wings (aka Kyle Field). “Look At What The Light Did Now” has been a personal favorite ever since hearing it in Chris Malloy’s 2004 surf film, A Brokedown Meoldy (check out the clip here). As expected, Feist nails the cover of the melodic folk tune on the her DVD’s bonus disc. Download both versions below and watch a trailer for the documentary after the jump.
Shakira covers the xx. Wait, what?
This one is kind of weird, so for it to really resinate give the original a few listens. I’ve been singing this song nonstop for a week.
Nothing could top the original “God Only Knows,” but this is the next best thing. Oh and I love this band’s name.
When I first heard this one, it took me a little while to realize what I was listening to. The only thing that’s missing is that sexy refrain… birthday sex, birthday sex. Where’s Jeremih when you need him?
