Feist Takes an Eclectic Turn on Her Solo Record
The Canadian "band" Feist is actually Leslie Feist, who once played in a band that was the opening act for the Ramones. She later went on to join the Toronto band Broken Social Scene; Feist's career has also intersected with bad-girl rapper Peaches and the Norwegian folk outfit Kings of Convenience.
On her new solo album, Let It Die, the Feist explores a variety of music -- including folk, bossa nova, and indie rock. The record includes memorable originals, along with a Bee Gees cover and a reworking of Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart."
