Cat Power live on WNYC
I mentioned seven posts ago about how Thao Nguyen ran into Cat Power at a radio station, and then in the last post I posted Thao's radio broadcast, and now here's Cat Power's. Cat Power (Chan Marshall) was also recently seen watching Radiohead with Feist and Mary J Blige.....
Canadian singer Leslie Feist is the winner of the Seventh Annual Shortlist Music Prize for her album The Reminder. Feist is the second female artist to win the prize, following Cat Power who won the award last year.Feist just announced some tour dates, and is playing the Grammys. RCRD LBL is giving away a Portishead-esque song by Readymade FC with Leslie Feist on vocals.
Feist is the first Canadian winner of the Shortlist Music Prize, joining Irish singer Damien Rice and Icelandic band Sigur Ros as Shortlist winners who hail from outside the US. Previous winners also include American artists Sufjan Stevens, N*E*R*D and TV on the Radio.

Kimya is the new Feist, @ Europa, Brooklyn, NY - Jan 16, 2008 (CRED)
If you were wondering why Kimya Dawson and Adam Green never ended up reuniting on the Conan O'Brien show....
Well, we said yes initially because I didn't realize what the situation still was with the strike. Then John Darnielle emailed me and told me what the deal was with Conan being forced back on and when I realized that no agreement had been reached with the writers, I cancelled. [Kimya Dawson to Gothamist]Kimya played Europa last night, and Southpaw and Sound Fix right before that. More dates TBA, and at her MySpace.

DOWNLOAD: Feist - Mushaboom (Postal Service Remix) (MP3)
Death Cab For Cutie is coming out with a new album in May 2008. You can watch a trailer for it on their new website.
Also to look foward to in 2008: a collaboration between Death Cab frontman Ben Gibbard and Leslie Feist...
during a recent off day in Louisville, she and her touring band got the itch to roll tape. "We thought, day off? Let's just do something fun," she recalls. "Bowling? A hike? Instead, we rented a studio."For a taste of what Gibbard & Feist sound like together, download the Postal Servce remix of "Mushaboom that is linked on the top of this post - right over that picture of Ben singing with Feist's Broken Social Scene band-mate (and boyfriend) Kevin Drew. That photo was taken by Chona Kasinger at a "Spirit If" show in October - a few weeks before a member of Pavement played with Kevin in NYC..
There, "we took turns and played together," she says. Feist "fooled around on some new stuff" and sang a Grizzly Bear song. She also recorded the basic track for a collaboration with Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard, which will appear on the "Red Hot and Indie" compilation being produced by the National's Aaron and Bryce Dessner.

Now Feist has something else to talk about.
DOWNLOAD: Sidetrack (Dirty Projectors) - Too Much Pressure (MP3)
This song will appear in the soundtrack for an independent film, 'Vernon Avenue' by Steffani Jemison and Amiel Melnick that takes place in Bed Stuy. The words are adapted from a scene in the movie where a man is teaching a girl how to play the guitar. I wrote the music, SideTrack and I co-produced. They are playing second at the Bowery on Tues, after Julianna Barwick and before White Williams." -Dave Longstreth of Dirty ProjectorsThis song is the perfect addition to one of my favorite albums of the year.
Tonight's show is still not sold out (Dec 4, 2007). Sidetrack was also scheduled to back Grizzly Bear on Conan O'Brien - the show that never happened due to the writer's strike. Grizzly Bear recently offered up these two sweet tracks.....

Gothamist: Broken Social Scene’s music has been featured on movies and TV shows. Have you licensed any of your songs for advertising?Broken Social Scene (and very special guests) perform Kevin Drew's "Spirit If" (and other songs) at Webster Hall in NYC tonight (Nov 14, 2007).
Kevin Drew: No, we turned down a lot, a lot of commercials. And you have to understand that this was the last move we could make when we were starting out as a band, in terms of sort of making some kind of statement that we didn’t want to be an advertisement. But now, even compared to two years ago, it’s just completely different. There used to be a textbook you had to follow to be an independent band but that doesn’t even exist anymore.
Commercials are now the new mainstream radio and there’s not even an element of anyone suspecting a band is selling out anymore when you go and do commercials. That is now the way for you to get your music out there, that is the way for people to hear your music and purchase your records; it is the strongest force for getting your music out, which is fucking crazy! But it’s not my battle, you know. I think a lot of bands have been foolish about it and put their songs in really stupid commercials and I think a lot of people have been very smart about it and put their songs in very good spots.
