Feist's 2007 album The Reminder was written and conceptualised on the go. Recorded in just two weeks in a 200 year old manor house on the outskirts of Paris, itís contributors include Gonzales, Jamie Lidell, Mocky and Erik Glambek Boe of The Kings Of Convenience. They filled the dining room and parlour with a piano, vibraphones, organs, guitars, amps, two drum kits against the stained glass windows and scattered microphones like mousetraps around wood-floored rooms.
Nobody, least of all Feist, anticipated the response listeners around the world would have to her [first solo album] Let It Die. Half a million albums sold, gigs around the world sold out, awards were won. Her name appeared in Best Of The Year lists. All of a sudden, a girl who was barely an unknown secret outside of Canada was very much on the global musical radar. Her response? To keep touring. Thirty-three months and three continents were covered.
