am vaguely aware of Feist as being someone quite trendy, and Wikipedia tells me that she is a sometimes member of the Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene. This is a shame, because I once heard a Broken Social Scene song that I liked and went to see them, only to be disappointed by their cock-rock posturing. It turns out, though, that I shouldn't have dismissed Feist because of that experience. This album is really nice. It sounds like a sort of 70s rocky Carole King album or something like that. Good songs. One of the better ones this year.
