Amy Millan, Emily Haines, & Leslie Feist | Sept 10, 2006 (CRED)
"Though there was some great music and moments on the first day of the Virgin Festival, it certainly ended on a sour note and day two would have to be pretty much flawless to salvage the event's reputation." [Chromewaves - Day 1]
"As usual, the high point was "Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl1 featuring Emily Haines, Amy Millan and Feist together on vocals. Initially spread out across the stage, the three ladies of Broken Social came together as the song gradually built up and at it's peak, they were practically nose to nose and ended in a group hug. Come on, that's special." [Chromewaves - Day 2]

JOSE GONZALEZ + ZERO 7
If you don't have them already, you can head over to MOKB to get 2 new Zero 7 songs featuring Jose Gonzalez on vocals. Jose & Zero 7 are playing the Hollywood Bowl together in August.
MOCKY + FEIST
Less blogged about, Feist sings on the first single ("Fightin Away the Tears") from the new Mocky album ("Navy Brown Blues"). Green Pea-ness has that MP3. The video is streaming on YouTube. Mocky also remixes Mushaboom on Feist's new album of remixes and collaborations. GWFAS has that MP3.
GONZALEZ + FEIST + MOCKY + JAMIE LIDELL
On "Gonzo"'s new DVD, "Mocky, Feist and Jamie Lidell join Gonzo for a set that includes a rare Gonzo live rap, as well as songs from Jamie Lidell and Feist's last albums."
GONZALEZ + JAMIE LIDELL
Gonzalez also remixed Jamie Lidell. That MP3 was in my last post.

Jun 25, 2006: Feist & Jason Collett play Central Park Summerstage in NYC
Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited comes out on February 27, 2006.
"Franz Ferdinand, Jane Birkin, Marianne Faithfull, Placebo, Carla Bruni, Portishead, Jarvis Cocker, Kid Loco, Françoise Hardy, Keith Flint, Cat Power, Michaël Stipe, Tricky, The Kills, Gonzales, Feist, Dani, The Rakes….All take part in the singular album of which it is a question here.
The bet was serious: to bring together artists resulting from the international scene to interpret English adaptations of the songs of Serge Gainsbourg. The casting and the various finally joined together versions exceed the hopes..." [joelearou]
UPDATE: The Modern Age has MP3s
Track list below...
This was my third time seeing Feist live, and after her band-less opening set at Bowery Ballroom, my expectations weren't very high. My only hope going in was that Feist would sing at least one duet with opener, and fellow Broken Social Scenester, Jason Collett. Not only did it happen, the show was everything I always hoped a Feist show would be. The band, energy, audience participation, song selection, etc, etc. was all great. The last song of the encore was the duet and the highlight of the show - Feist and Jason sang Broken Social Scene's "Major Label Debut" (on the same stage BSS played with Emily Haines and Lisa Lobsinger only three weeks earlier). Closet OC Fan has the audio.
MATES OF STATE @ SIREN 2005 (more)
You may have noticed that Mates of State were added to the Feist / Jason Collett show at Webster Hall. Yesterday I posted a track from the band's debut on Barsuk Records. "Barsuk will issue their 4th album Bring It Back on March 21, 2006 and the band will support the album on a tour with Maria Taylor and others." Those tour dates below...
Two Broken Social Scenesters are touring together. Feist and Jason Collett will hit Webster Hall in NYC on February 10th, 2006. Broken Social Scene will be in NYC less than three weeks earlier. I wasn't expecting Feist to be there, but I guess we should't expect Jason either. He'll be in Chicago and Madison with Feist on the 27th and 28th of Janurary. All dates at More Cowbell.
More Cowbell supplied the below tour dates...
Sorry I didn't post this earlier (for those that have been commenting about it), but I knew her NYC shows wouldn't sell right out, and I wanted to make sure you knew about the Cloud Cult/Doveman/?/Aziz/ show on Sept. 13th before I posted that Feist tickets were on sale for her Sept. 13th & 14th CMJ shows at Knitting Factory. Other tour dates include Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Michigan, and Philadelphia, and can be found at her website.
In related news, you can now download the studio version of Broken Social Scene's new song called "Shoreline." Feist sings on it. As More Cowbell pointed out, this is "not the CBC ZeD TV version that has been floating around forever." (though its not the highest quality MP3 either)
Pitchfork only gave the song 3 stars, but to me it signals a potentially great new BSS album. Pitchfork gave the track 4.5 stars, which is about what I was thinking. Their 4.5/5 was an update to their previous rating of the live version which only got a 3.0/5. The new self titled BSS CD comes out on October 4th.

* 'The Big Ticket' just saw Feist in Minneapolis(?) and posted a video clip from the show and links to other videos.
Some Arts & Crafts updates...
Stars, who just played the Canada Day concert in Prospect Park, has a video for "Reunion." Watch/Download it. (quicktime) (via Done Waiting)
Last week I heard Feist playing in Starbucks. This week NPR reviewed her album.
Feist highly recommends fellow Broken Social Scenester Jason Collett's lastest solo album (that she also guests on). I've probably listened to it about 20 times. The track ("Hangover Days") with Emily Haines from Metric stands out (listen here), and I like it, but sixeyes REALLY likes it.
For the Records was at the Feist/Apostle of Hustle Canada Day show earlier this week in Toronto. Chromewaves was there too. Who was at the Apostle of Hustle show at Mercury Lounge? I heeard Dr. Dog stole the show (the same Dr. Dog playing with CYHSY @ Southpaw & with Son Volt @ South Street Seaport).
Looking forward to Broken Social Scene with Dinosaur Jr & Stars with Death Cab/Decemberists @ Summerstage this summer...

This NYC Borders in-store sort of makes up for having to miss Feist at Bowery Ballroom in order to go to the New Pornographers/Stars show in Prospect Park this Saturday...
"Join French-Canadian chanteuse Feist for a live performance and CD signing for her solo debut and latest effort, Let It Die. Lending her talents with everyone from Kings of Convenience to Peaches, Feist leaves no border un-crossed and delivers her unique and touching solo work firsthand. Come see for yourself why this is a critical fave and have your copy signed by this talent." (via the Underground Fairy)
Feist opened for British Sea Power @ Bowery Ballroom on Saturday May 14th, 2005. I wasn't as impressed with her performance as I was at Joe's Pub. She didn't have a band, and I don't like the way she constantly tells the audience they suck (not in those words exactly). On the other hand, some people I talked to really liked her AND her attitude. I'm also probably guilty of over-listening to her album (thus making her songs less exciting @ Bowery), and maybe I was tired (though I still loved the energetic British Sea Power who came on after her).
She's back as a headliner at the same venue on June 25th after opening some shows for (the now signed to a major label) Rilo Kiley. I'll definitely give her another chance (assuming she'll have a band next time too). All 2005 tour dates below.
"Behind k-os and Lavigne were rock group Billy Talent, who earned two awards for Group of the Year and Album of the Year and international rising star, Feist who won two awards for New Artist of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year."

Leslie Feist played NYC (Tuesday March 22nd, 2005) for the first time since she released Let it Die as Feist. It was also the first time she ever played two shows in one night in one city (the photos in this post are from the early show).
Her band, though you wouldn't know it by my pictures, consisted of three guys. One was on drums. The other two switched between horns, keyboard, piano, etc.. Leslie plays a guitar while she sings.
Let it Die is a pop masterpiece (in my uneducated opinion). Some might file the CD under "adult contemporary," but don't file Leslie there, or at least that's what I felt she wanted to get across at Joe's Pub (the ultimate adult contemporary" venue). For starters, she expressed her displeasure at performing in a venue where people were eating. She was further disappointed when the crowd didn't do much, but stay in their seats, arms folded...and eating. Further proof of this would be the songs she chose to perform. I wasn't actually counting, but I'm pretty sure less than half her set was from Let It Die. She wasn't exactly playing Broken Social Scene or Peaches tunes either, but she definitely jumped all over the genre map. The map included a cover of a Ron Sexsmith song. The encore was the Bee Gees cover that IS on Let it Die.
I loved the show and felt really lucky to be there. I'll be there again when she opens for British Sea Power at Bowery Ballroom on May 14th and 15th (2005). Now (or when you're done here) proceed to Tofu Hut for the most awesomest Feist post I ever read...with a review of the late show, rare downloads, links and the most thorough history of Feist I ever read.
