Here’s a longer version of the Feist interview KXT aired yesterday late afternoon. It starts with “How Come You Never Go There” from soundcheck and then goes into the interview. The bonus nugget is the part of the interview where she talks about the upcoming Muppet Movie, and there is an extra song from soundcheck, “Graveyard” at the end. Enjoy!
Feist just signed a guitar at the Majestic Theatre for a contributor who won the Feist ticket/guitar combo during the KXT Fall Membership Campaign finale a couple weeks back! Just so you know, she’s super nice and generous with her time. The show tonight will be superb, no doubt.
From her 2007 release The Reminder, Canadian artist Leslie Feist provides this update of a song that was first recorded by field folklore archivist Herbert Halpert in 1939. Though interpretations have ranged from “C-Line Woman” to “See Lyin’ Woman”, this version carries the stomping energy of that field recording, updated with keyboard and synth touches that place it in context with Feist’s modern sound.
The Norwegian duo of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe grew a sizeable fanbase with the laid-back harmonies of their first two records, Quiet is the New Loud and Riot on an Empty Street (whose track “Know How” featured a then-lesser-known Feist). Their latest, Declaration of Dependence, finds them doing what they do best, evoking Simon and Garfunkel’s on a permanent island vacation.
