Let It Die
Released: May 2004
Recorded in Paris, this indie release has garnered so many rave reviews it's earned Feist a major label deal. "One Evening" could be a soft rock hit from the late 1970s, while "Mushaboom" sounds like a pop single crafted by aliens after they've picked up radio waves from Earth (all the pop elements are here, they're just put together slightly differently). Fantastic.
