Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in Video on Sunday 28 December 2008

Now, this will be fun. Swedish-Japanese singer Maia Hirasawa’s album, Though, I’m Just Me, is set for release on February 17 on Thrive Records. She gets a lot of comparisons to Regina Spektor and Lykke Li, and Bust recently compared her to Feist and a ‘less-angsty Bjork’. And, watching the video for her single, And […]

Brooklyn’s McCarren Park, Enids

Marcos Chin Reader Find

By Marcos Chin in Cool Travel on Friday 8 August 2008

Summertime at McCarren Park in Williamsburg is picturesque. It’s often filled with a mix of people, old and young, picnicking or sitting in the shade, running along the track or playing soccer (or football, depending on where you’re from). It’s also connected to a now defunct McCarren (swimming) pool which transforms into an outdoor concert space on Sundays during the summer. In the past, performers such as Leslie Feist, M.I.A., The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Broken Social Scene have performed.

New Buffalo

Monique Rothstein Reader Find

By Monique Rothstein in New Music on Monday 31 March 2008

Things are happening almost too quickly for Sally Seltmann, the bashful Melbourne balladeer who plays under the guise of New Buffalo and who wrote Feist’s 2007 hit single, 1,2,3,4.

Thao with the Get Down Stay Down

Ari Stein Reader Find

By Ari Stein in New Music on Wednesday 26 March 2008

Like a breath of fresh air, Thao Nguyen is a totally independent voice from San Francisco. With a dash of Modest Mouse, a splash of Feist and an eye for the quirkier side of life.

Ra Ra Riot

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Sunday 6 January 2008

Syracuse group Ra Ra Riot call their sound ‘healing’ and ‘easy listening’. Others have labeled them as Nu Wave. Whatever. We spoke with Alexandra from the band to get the lowdown: ‘Whenever we are asked by strangers, like the security people at airports, we always say we’re ‘rock n’ roll’. We might even throw in […]

Rolling moon

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 6 December 2007

What is it about a full moon that scatters the collective, latent neurosis of a million broken hearts into a whirlpool of dogged urban mayhem? I don’t know. Maybe Feist has the answer. Soothe. Soothe. Soothe.

One evening

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Wednesday 31 October 2007

Gonzales’ gentle piano reworking of the beautiful Feist soliloquy, One Evening, trickles through my headphones like the sweetest sprinkle of mid-winter sunshine.

Oh man! Even more music for numbers

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Sunday 26 August 2007

This is week two of our big subscriber drive. As we noted in our earlier post, we really want more people to check into the site and sign up to the newsletter, and to encourage you to spread the word, we have a stack of CDs to give away. And when I say a stack, I mean a wobbling, teetering stack. The grand prize, which will be dished out to one lucky, randomly selected winner, comes courtesy of our good friends at Universal Music [check the list of albums at the bottom of this post]. On top of this, for the next two weeks, we’ll also be giving away new Basement Digs / Stones Throw releases thanks to our good friends at Creative Vibes to randomly selected people who help to spread the good word. Let’s face it … sharing really is caring.

By Andy in New Music, Video on Friday 17 August 2007

We’ve gushed over Feist plenty of times before, but it’s time to talk about Feist’s ‘1234’ music video entered by Patrick Daughters in this year’s Portable Film Festival (oh by the way, the festival is now open). ‘Shot in one take, it has been cleverly choreographed to create a quirky stream of colour and movement’.

It’s the fourth of July here in New York, a day of patriotism, fireworks and hotdogs; sleep-ins, strong coffees, and rooftop barbies. Yup, god bless America and this damn pleasant national holiday. [illustration by Marcos Chin] Listen to the Feist song, My Moon My Man.

Dawn Landes covers Young Folks

Kate Barnett Reader Find

By Kate Barnett in New Music, Video on Thursday 31 May 2007

If you haven’t heard the Peter Bjorn and John song Young Folks you’ve been under a rock. Or at least somewhere far away from the radio, which is lucky for you because I’m well over it. However, I do like this cover. Kentucky-born New York performer and sound engineer Dawn Landes has recorded a version […]

Fronted by the ethereal Kate Bush-like vocals of Natasha Khan, Bat For Lashes creates atmospheric, almost hymn-like music, weaving wicked melodies around simple instrumentation. [see also Feist] Listen to the Bat For Lashes song, Prescilla.
