Sense of Place: Toronto Feist Vintage Cafe from 2007

November 18, 2013 - Our World Cafe: Next artist for our Sense of Place visit to Toronto are July Talk, a Toronto-based five piece band, co-led by vocalists Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay. Their debut album came out in October of 2012 on White Girl records.

Two things immediately come to mind upon the arrival of Feist’s new album Metals. First, where has she been? It’s been roughly four years since her breakthrough album The Reminder was released. And second, how will she respond after the massive success of that album and more specifically her numerical anthem “1,2,3,4”? The first question is easier to answer. After years of touring, some time to decompress and step out of the spotlight seems only fair and appropriate. And as you dive into the new album Metals, the answer to the second question becomes clear.

Leslie Feist's third album, The Reminder, is another strong outing from this prolific songstress. She may be best known for her work with Broken Social Scene or Kings Of Convenience, but not for long. This new album reinforces what we already knew... Feist is a very, very good songwriter with a memorable voice.

Feist is Leslie Feist, a Canadian singer-songwriter who has worked with the Norwegian folk-pop group Kings Of Convenience, the wondrously talented Toronto rock band Broken Social Scene, and even Peaches, a female rapper.
