So, whilst the standout track is Feist's own, glorious "Mushaboom" the second half of the album consists of some excellent covers. She makes each and every one of them her own, from The Bee Gees "(Love You) Inside and Out", through Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart" to old Vocal Jazz standard "Now at Last" not to mention the others.
Whether or not this release is a commercial success, it is already a resounding success that it can be released in today's unsure musical industry. Simply fantastic.
I discovered this last year when on holiday and it has been a constant since then, and it came into its' own when we were in Paris towards the end of the year where the album was recorded and it just fit so well and captured our hearts. There are definitely several sides to the album: laid back; 70's groove; french chanson all combining to make it varied and interesting. It is leftfield enough in a Beth Orton way to be cool but not edgy in a PJ Harvey way to be uncomfortable and the Bee Gees cover is superb. Personal favourite is Mushaboom which is sublime. Her voice is great and choice of songs serve to give it longevity
She is touring soon and I recommend trying to catch her live, or at least doing yourself a favour and buying this album.
