Some buzz on the new album from Canadian indie darling Feist, who I paid some attention to in 2004 when Mushaboom was a quirky hit. A friend forked the new songs over a couple of months ago and I gave them a skimming listen, quickly deleting the whole album except one tune. Not that it was terrible -- it's just very mellow and I probably wasn't in the mood or whatever. But the one song I kept is a true masterpiece: Honey Honey (mp3 from a really nice mp3 blog I hadn't seen before). The subtle beauty snuck up on me and sent me scrambling back to listen to the other songs again -- I still haven't warmed up to the whole album, but that song...wow.
